Keeping Communities Together

By a vote of 4-1, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors today adopted an amended Plan A-3. After the most open and inclusive redistricting process in the history of Los Angeles County, I am pleased that the Board of Supervisors was able to reach agreement after months of review.  I want to thank the thousands of people who came to testify, wrote letters, and sent emails.  Today’s vote reflects their voice as we maintain our long established communities and avoid unnecessary shifts of millions of people to new districts. In addition to meeting the letter and spirit of the Voting Rights Act, this plan preserves the relationships,  connections and service levels that have been built over decades.  It’s now time to move forward and address the challenges and issues we face in our County.
