County district boundaries subject of workshopA workshop to discuss adjusting San Mateo County supervisorial district boundaries based on new census data is set for 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 13, in the Menlo Park Senior Center, 100 Terminal Ave. in Menlo Park. The workshop, the first of five to be held countywide, will be facilitated by the League of Women Voters.
The county has five supervisorial districts; each district has its own representative on the Board of Supervisors, although all voters in the county can vote in each district race. After each census, the county is required to adjust district boundaries to make them nearly equal in population, according to a county press release.
The workshops are held to give the public information about the process, and a chance to comment on the boundary changes. There will also be workshops in Half Moon Bay, Millbrae, Foster City, and Daly City.
Members of the public who are unable to attend a workshop can send their comments via email to DistrictLines@co.sanmateo.ca.us.
