Statewide reform plans, initiatives, and political battles at the highest of levels might get all the headlines, but The Salinas Californian announces:
TODAY | CITIZENS’ COMMITTEE FOR MONTEREY PENINSULA COLLEGE REDISTRICTING, Villa Del Monte, 1670 Broadway, Seaside, 3 to 5 p.m., in community room. Forum on redistricting of board.
The odd thing about all the eye-glazing reactions that the word “redistricting” causes is that it simply refers to a fact of all levels of democratic lifeâ€”a practical necessity of any sort of elected representation. So long as demographics change there will be pressure for district boundaries to change as well.
