County Supervisors Approve New Political Boundaries
San Diego County supervisors formally adopted new boundaries during a September 27 hearing. While the new political map, good until 2021, shuffles the communities of La Jolla and Fairbanks Ranch to new districts, the largest change in the political lines occurs in South Bay's District 1.
That district, represented by supervisor Greg Cox, will become the sole district where minorities are the voting majority.
Adoption of the new lines comes after weeks of accusations from the public that five white Republican supervisors didn't reflect the county's demographic.
Now with supervisor Pam Slater-Price planning to retire, and a new voting majority in District 1, change will be coming to the County's Board of Supervisors for the first time in 16 years.
