Public Input Hearing
Sunday, April 10, 2011
Yuba County Government Center
8th & J Streets
Marysville, CA 95901
2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
The 14 member Independent California Citizens Redistricting Commission
will hold a public input meeting in Marysville on April 10, from 2:00
p.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the Yuba County Government Center. The Commission
was created by California voters to draw state Congressional, Assembly,
Senate and Board of Equalization Districts.
Public participation in drawing these districts is critical to
ensuring that communities have the strongest voice possible to express
their preferences. When voters with similar interests are drawn into a
district together, their voices multiply giving them a greater
opportunity to express their views, elect candidates of their choice and
hold their leaders accountable.
The Commission is taking testimony from local area residents before
drawing its first round of draft maps which will be released in June.
Final district maps must be certified by the Commission and presented to
the Secretary of State by August 15, 2011.
