Political analysts say the first map of San Diego’s California constituency is moving toward a status quo in San Diego.
The California Citizens’ Reconstruction Commission has been setting California’s political boundaries since 2020. The 14-member bipartisan organization is adjusting the country’s electoral line to the health benefits of the latest census.
The commission consists of five Democrats, five Republicans and four party-elected members. This is the second time that an independent commission has convened to determine the boundaries of the vote.
Last month, the commission released a sub-section of the California House of Representatives, a Senate, an equalizer, and a new constituency for U.S. congressional offices.
The security map offers a snapshot of the state and federal constituencies and is a preview of the actual sketches of the map released Wednesday.
Since January, the organization has held 35 public opinion polls, conducted by Commissioner Patricia Sinai, a resident of Enchintas, who received 1,340 votes out of 300 from San Diego and the Imperial States. They have information on this for the first time to see what the new constituency will look like.
It can be viewed from the outside of the depot and can be categorized virtually for different offices.
Instead of trying to redraw the existing districts, the commissioners have consolidated the residents into relevant spring clusters, tightening some lines across the border.
“We use an empty map,” he said. “The districts are visible from the previous generation, because we are opening from a point of depiction, not from an existing map.”
far from the course of action, but observers are trying to work out possible changes.
Will Rodriguez-Kennedy, chairman of the San Diego Democratic Party, is concerned about private lines.
“They drew a line of trust for the beggars in many districts of the state,” he described. “If you hit Hillcross (State Road) along with 163, the Senate district depicts a landslide, no commission in any space. You see the LGBTQ community in the middle. “
In other cases, in his language, being together is different from distorting their representation.
“Some have both Santi and the National City in the same district,” he says, referring to a white, middle-class city and its low-income, predominantly Hispanic area. “What does it mean? Santi and the National Cities can’t be different cities.”
Sinai has to do how the draft map will show the constituency in its official first image, and it should show a legitimate change.
He says there should be a number of districts for each type of office. The 80-seat Assembly has a population of 500,000. Each of the 40 Senate districts should have a good 1 million. The 52 constituencies in Congress will represent 760,000 people.
Districts should be adjacent, cities, provinces, villages, and interest associations should not be divided and should be compact.
Ko also said the state Senate district commissioner should work to “nest” the two districts of Congress and the state districts with one seat in the 10-Senate Equation Council.
Sinai said the commissioners on the San Diego block are trying to keep Latinos voting in South County. They also want to keep tribal territories together in Imperial, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego to consolidate the views of tribal governments.
Perhaps the biggest question related to the loss of the California congressional seat is the re-examination.
California is the most populous state with a population of 40 million, but the growth of other states has stalled. For the first time in its 170-year history, it has risen from 53 to 52 in the US House of Representatives.
Since the boundaries of the districts are across the state, it is unlikely that one existing district will simply be removed from the map. In time, all lines of demographic change will shift.
According to some analysts, Los Angeles is likely to lose its congressional constituency; Rodriguez-Kennedy said he thinks San Diego is unlikely to pull a short straw.
“Currently, San Diego has two districts within San Diego (milk), and each of the other three districts passes through Orange or Riverside (milk),” he said. “It’s not clear how many of our districts will have access to other states, but I don’t think we’ll miss one.”
One of the most striking changes in the image is the possibility of an expansion into the 50th Congressional Circle, a Republican stronghold north and east of downtown San Diego.
“The proposed map has interesting implications for San Diego,” said Carl Luna, a professor of political science at San Diego Mesa College. “(Representative Darrell) The 50th pro-DP constituency in Issa is merging with the eastern part of District 51 and expanding to Riverside, which may make it more competitive for Democrat seats,” he said.
“The commission is creating a unified district of San Diego’s Eastern District / Imperial District, basically covering the border from the Alps to Arizona and Riverside,” Luna said.
San Diego Republican officials could not be reached for comment.
The first set of maps will be released on Wednesday, and the commission will have two weeks to provide feedback to the public before releasing the updated versions.
The commission is expected to approve the final package by December 27, and Sinai said it hopes to complete it a few days earlier. He said the final map would be returned to the California Secretary of State.
Rodriguez-Kennedy said the San Diegans should be called to the next hearing to express their concerns. He said he hoped the commission would take these suggestions into account when finalizing the final map.
The city and counties of San Diego are also working on new electoral boundaries. These redistribution committees have received public feedback, the provincial Democratic Party leader said.
“I see how other (restrictive) commissions work, and I think the commissions in general have a lot of respect for public feedback,” Rodriguez-Kennedy said.
