NORTH COUNTY ALERT!!

IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED BY NOVEMBER 10TH

Every ten years after the Census, districts are redrawn. The new proposed maps will completely tear apart the North county communities. If the new maps are approved as is they will eliminate all five Republican districts in San Diego!


The Citizens Redistricting Committee (CRC) has drawn Carlsbad, Vista/San Marcos, and Oceanside Carlsbad, Vista/San Marcos, and Oceanside into separate districts. This would take away our voice in North County by splitting up the Tri Cities!

The (CRC) has also drawn rural Escondido and Valley Center into the coastal communities of La Jolla and Coronado. This would also dilute our voice in the North County rural areas!

 

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD

You have a great opportunity to influence the process for the better by making the argument to the Citizens Redistricting Commission (CRC) that Oceanside, Carlsbad, Vista, San Marcos, and Camp Pendleton must remain in the same district as a Community of Interest!

Temecula, Fallbrook, Bonsall, Rainbow, Valley Center, and Escondido need to be in the same Congressional, State Senate, and State Assembly Districts.


You DO NOT need to live in North county to submit a comment. These proposed maps will have implications on all of SD county.

SAMPLE COMMENTS

FOR AWAKEN CHURCH San Marcos:

"As a member of Awaken church, I strongly oppose the maps that have been proposed for North County Inland areas. Our church has many attendees that live in Temecula, Fallbrook, Bonsall, Rainbow, Valley Center, and Escondido areas. We share many of the same values so these districts need to remain in the same Congressional, State Senate, and State Assembly Districts.”

FOR AWAKEN CHURCH BRESSI:

"As a member of Awaken church, I strongly oppose the maps that have been proposed for North County Coastal areas. Our church has many attendees that live in the Tri-City area of Oceanside, Carlsbad and Vista. We share many of the same values and we do not want the tri-city area split up.

“I strongly oppose the maps that have been proposed for North County.Your proposed map shows a complete lack of understanding regarding the communities of interest in San Diego County. For example, you put the rural-interface communities of Escondido and Valley Center into the coastal communities of La Jolla and Coronado.This is a clear example of your attempt to dilute the rural voices in our country by combining them with coastal and urban areas that have nothing in common with rural living.”

“I strongly oppose the maps that have been proposed for North County. Please consider adopting the maps at www.sdcountyredistrictingmap.org. These maps better serve our community of interests.”

“I strongly oppose the maps that have been proposed for North County. Your proposed map splits up the Tri-City area of Oceanside, Carlsbad and Vista which silences the voice of this long-standing community of interest. It has been a long standing practice to put the Tri-City area in the same State Assembly and State Senate seats."

“Your proposed map splits up the I-15 North communities into separate districts when these communities have strong ties and bonds. Please keep Temecula, Fallbrook, Bonsall, Rainbow, Valley Center, and Escondido in the same Congressional, State Senate, and State Assembly Districts.”

 

COMMENT GUIDELINES

Avoid political statements. Don't mention current districts, candidates, or elected representatives' names; the Commission will ignore these types of arguments.

Clearly identify the geographical boundaries of which communities you want included in the same district.

Use any relevant personal experiences, or anecdotes in your testimony.

Focus on 1-2 reasons. Makes your testimony more precise and impactful! It's ok to keep it short.
