Given that the ï¿½Ad Hocï¿½ Redistricting Committee is Supv Haggerty and Supv Carson (did anyone know that?), I will be VERY surprised if any Redistricting Map other than Map A is recommended for final consideration. Supv Haggerty would like us to believe that ï¿½heï¿½s not pre-judging the planï¿½. REALLY? He and Supv Carson developed ï¿½the planï¿½ - aka Map A. By keeping redistricting completely ï¿½in-houseï¿½ with the Board of Supervisors (ï¿½BofSï¿½), the supervisors have guaranteed they will get what they want ï¿½ not necessarily what is good for Alameda County residents and their communities.
The BofS portion begins on page 123 of the actual document. I LOLï¿½d when I saw that the first two ï¿½Valuesï¿½ the BofS would like us to believe they govern by are:
- Integrity, honesty, and respect fostering mutual trust.
- Transparency and accountability achieved through open communications and involvement of diverse community voices.
So far, I havenï¿½t seen much of either in this BofS process.
