Only three from SoCal, one of the three from under represented LA County. Zero from the Fresono/Bakerfield area. It would seem the Inland Empire did well with the first eight.
Must wait to determine the balance after the final six are selected.

Let's see? We voted for a commission to keep redistricting out of the hands of politicians and then we pick politicians for the commission???

There should be more Latinos. This system is racist.

I don't understand. If this is "Citizens Redistricting Commission" why does an elected City Official get to serve?

Don't worry folks I bet one of the remaining six is Latino, gay, disabled, low income, unemployed, and uneducated. That should make the process fair.

Yao will resign from his current political post to be eligble to serve in his new capacity, therefore, a "citizen commission."

I guess Yao living up Driers arse for the last couple of years has paid off.
