Perry to testify at D9 redistricting hearing

imageCouncilwoman Jan Perry is scheduled to testify at the first public hearing of the City’s Redistricting Commission in District 9, which will be held tomorrow from 11 am to 2 pm at the Santee Educational Complex. The school is located at 1921 South Maple Avenue 90011.

Perry, who will be joining community members and stakeholders from her district, says she wants to get people involved early in a process that will shape their political representation for the next ten years.

The City Council district boundaries are re-drawn every 10 years to account for population changes, which are determined as a result of the Census.

The Redistricting Commission makes recommendations to the City Council that will help establish new boundaries for City Council districts.

During public hearings, community members can make comments and provide public input directly to Commissioners.
