San Mateo County holding meeting on new district lines
June 15, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

County residents interested in deciding how the new supervisorial district lines are drawn have another chance Saturday to voice their thoughts and concerns to the committee charged with making a final recommendation.

The second meeting in a series of five is Saturday, June 15 in Half Moon Bay but all county residents are welcome.

As with each of the five meetings held, Saturday’s event will include a demographer’s report, public comment and be before the nine-member boundary adjustment committee named by the Board of Supervisors to carry out the remapping required by the charter change voters approved in November. The measure moved the county from supervisors being chosen by voters countywide to a system in which only voters in a specific district choose a supervisor that lives in that district. The county already has supervisorial districts drawn but is reviewing the lines and possibly making tweaks before the next election. Districts must be approximately equal in population and the supervisors may also consider other factors like topography, geography, cohesiveness and community interests.

The committee members chosen by the Board are: Supervisors Adrienne J. Tissier and Warren Slocum; Gonzalo “Sal” Torres, a Daly City councilman; Laura Martinez, an East Palo Alto councilwoman; and public members: Hayden Lee of Millbrae; Raymond Lee of San Mateo; Barbara Arietta of Pacifica; William Nack of Menlo Park; and Rebecca Ayson of Daly City. Each public member resides in one of the five current districts.

The next meeting is 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Saturday, June 15 at the Cunha Intermediate School Library, 600 Church St., Half Moon Bay.

Other upcoming meetings are:

• 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 18 at the War Memorial Community Center, 6655 Mission St., Daly City;

• 6:30 p.m. to 8: 30 p.m. Tuesday, June 25 in the East Palo Alto Council Chambers, 2415 University Ave., East Palo Alto;

• 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, July 11 at the Millbrae Community Center, 477 Lincoln Circle, Millbrae.

More information is available at www.smcgov.org/bos under “Supervisorial District Lines Advisory Committee.”
