LEGISLATURE PASSES BILL TO HAVE RETIRED JUDGES REDRAW DISTRICT LINES FOR SAN DIEGO SUPERVISORS

August 28, 2012 (San Diego)—San Diego County Supervisors won’t be able to redraw their own district lines or assign hand-picked appointees to do so if Governor Jerry Brown signs Senate Bill 1331 and San Diego voters approve the new plan. 
 
The bill, authored by Senator Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego), has passed both houses of the state Legislature.  It would require retired judges to redraw supervisors’ districts starting in 2021. The bill applies only to San Diego County, where Supervisors have been accused of gerrymandering districts to retain power for conservatives.
