City Seeking Applicants for First-Ever Independent Redistricting Commission

The City of Sacramento has what many city and county voters in our state dream of—an independent redistricting commission! For the first time, Citizens, not politicians will draw the council district lines. Since our League was instrumental is getting this commission adopted by charter amendment, it is important that we participate in the implementation to insure its success.

The first step is to make sure we have a commission that is ethnically diverse and representative of all council Districts. If you are a League member living in the city and are knowledgeable about Sacramento neighborhoods, please consider applying yourself. There are other qualifications to insure you are truly an independent voice, free from political influence.

In addition, we need you to help us find and encourage others who meet the qualifications to apply. We need 13 Commissioners. What a great learning experience this would be! The City Clerk needs a minimum of 40 qualified applicants including at least 3 from each of the 8 council districts. The Ethics Commission be involved in the vetting of applicants.

The League will be working with other community partners, as we did for the Voter’s Choice Act, to help recruit applicants but we need YOU as a League member to help recruit Commissioners. A one page recruitment flyer will be posted on the LWVSC website soon and a webinar is planned for middle of January.
