Opinion: Redistricting for Dummies

Redistricting is complicated. If you haven’t been paying attention to the LA City Council redistricting process until just recently… it’s even more complicated!

So…please don’t take the title of this post as a personal attack.  It’s more of a call to action. NOW is the time to ENGAGE in your local politics and voice your opinion, if you are so inclined. My intention is to simplify what’s going on…

All of us are facing change in our local City Council representation – for some in our neighborhood(s), it might be positive change; for others, it might not be so positive. As things currently stand, we will be moving into Council District 5.

Tonight – Wednesday, February 1st – is your opportunity to proffer input about what this change means to you. There’s an LA City Council redistricting meeting taking place at The Ebell Theater at 6:30p.  The Redistricting Committee is soliciting input on the current map of future LA City Council Districts. They’ll take all input under consideration as they develop what will be the permanent boundaries of LA City Council Districts going forward – at least for the next 10 years.

Your physical presence at this meeting will mean something. If you care about this issue, we encourage you to show up and be a part of the process.

  1. Does anyone know anything about Paul Koretz, or why he would suddenly be taking on our neighborhood? I’m far from an expert on local politics, but LaBonge certainly does have a very active presence in our neighborhood and seems to take our issues to heart — his staff have been super attentive and helpful on a variety of issues from installing speed bumps on our street to block party permits to supporting schools in the area. Seems so odd that he wouldn’t be our rep anymore, and far MORE odd that we would be part of a “westside” lump — we’re so NOT westsiders!! Confused….
