Redistricting – The State Senate


On July 29th The California Citizens Redistricting Commission took their first vote on the final maps for State Assembly, State Senate, Congressional and Board of Equalization district maps. At the Senate level we will continued to be represented by Mark DeSauliner however the boundaries of Senate District 7 have changed. Instead of covering most of Contra Costa the new boundaries have more of a north/south look to it. The new lines include communities in central and eastern Contra Costa and Alameda counties.

Because Mark is the only State Senator currently living within the newly created boarders of the district the question of who will represent us is moot. The concern about odd or even numbering in not relevant, So, instead of traveling east/west across Contra Costa the Senator will have to change his traffic pattern to a north/south route. For Oakley keeping mark as our Senator is great. He has been fantastic advocate for our City in Sacramento.
