Patriots,

We all have one more chance to express our desire to keep the SCV whole before the first set of maps come out in June.  Please take the opportunity to show your support for the effort.  In an effort to pull together, a new group, called The Coalition of Suburban Communities for Fair Representation (http://www.suburbancommunities.org/) has been granted special permission to speak to the Redistricting Commission at CSUN on Thursday.  They will be speaking on the issue of keeping the SCV whole

The group is asking for your help with obtaining signatures for their petition which will be delivered to the Redistricting Commission on Thursday.  We need as many signatures as possible by COB tomorrow (Monday).   

 

This will be best shot at keeping our Valley whole for the next 10 years.  Please take the time to go to their site, sign the petition, and then forward it to everyone you know who lives in the SCV, Simi Valley,  Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, or Moorpark.

When time is of the essence, it is the True Patriot that makes the difference.  Let's get to it!

  

 

 

 

Keep the faith, fellow Patriots!

Citizens Redistricting Commission

Public Input Hearing

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Oxnard College

Performing Arts Building

4000 South Rose Avenue

Oxnard, CA 93033

6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.


__________________________________________________________________


The 14 member Independent California Citizens Redistricting Commission will hold a public input meeting in Oxnard on June 22, 2011, from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. in the Performing Arts Building at Oxnard College. The Commission was created by California voters to draw state Congressional, Assembly, Senate and Board of Equalization Districts.

Public participation in drawing these districts is critical to ensuring that communities have the strongest voice possible to express their preferences. When voters with similar interests are drawn into a district together, their voices multiply giving them a greater opportunity to express their views, elect candidates of their choice and hold their leaders accountable.

The Commission is taking testimony from local area residents before drawing its first round of draft maps which will be released in June. Final district maps must be certified by the Commission and presented to the Secretary of State by August 15, 2011.

The maximum time for each speaker is 2 minutes. Speakers should provide copies for the 14 members of the Commission of documents they are submitting as testimony. Speaker numbers may be obtained one hour prior to the posted time of the hearing. The posted meeting time may not extend more than 2 hours beyond the original closing, subject to venue limitations and speaker demand. No speaker numbers will be given out after the end of the posted meeting time. Due to high speaker demand, it is possible that not all people who have been given numbers will have the opportunity to speak.

The Commission encourages the public to use alternative methods to submit testimony by e-mail at votersfirstact@crc.ca.gov, fax at 916-651-5711 or by mail to the Citizens Redistricting Commission,

901 P Street, Suite 154-A, Sacramento, CA 95814.

Please visit the Commission’s website at www.wedrawthelines.ca.gov for complete information on the hearings and to access a guide to help you prepare your testimony. The guide can be found on the home page under "Guide to Participation."

All public input hearings are ADA accessible. Any person who wishes to request auxiliary aids or services, including translation, to participate in the hearing of the Commission, in accordance with State or Federal law, should contact Janeece Sargis at 1-866-356-5217 not later than five (5) business days before the noticed hearing date.

Redistricting Commission tries to repeal One Person, One Vote
CA Political News – Monday, May 02, 2011

By Tony Quinn, Political Commentator and Former Legislative Staffer

In one of its first acts, the new Citizens Redistricting Commission has decided to ignore the United States and California Constitutions by in effect repealing the historical “one person one vote” rule that has been law in America for 47 years.

They did this by telling their staff to draw districts that will clearly violate constitutional population standards.  This is so their final maps can over represent liberal areas of California that are losing population, such as Los Angeles and the Bay Area, and then under represent the more conservative inland areas of California that are growing.

In his famous “one person – one vote” ruling in 1964, Chief Justice Earl Warren said this was unconstitutional….

[…]

In 1965, the California Supreme Court applied the new “one person one vote” standard in its famous Silver v. Brown decision.  California legislative districts were allowed to deviate by no more than two percent.

In 1973, in a case called Legislature v Reinecke, the Court further refined the standard: “Population of Senate and Assembly districts should be within one percent of the ideal except in unusual circumstances, and in no event should a deviation greater than two percent be permitted.”

[…]

On April 28, 2011 the Citizens Redistricting Commission voted to allow deviations up to five percent among legislative districts.  A five percent deviation will amount to 46,567 people in Senate districts and 23,284 people in Assembly districts.  That’s a lot of folks.  Apply this standard in a growth area like Riverside County and you can effectively disenfranchise 200,000 people.

[…]

The five percent deviation is the brainchild of Commissioner Maria Blanco, who is among the most left wing members of the CommissionBlanco’s allies among liberal activist groups have discovered that they cannot maintain all the existing Democratic and inner urban legislators because of slow population growth. 

[…]

Blanco manipulated nine of her colleagues into going along with this effort to nullify federal and state law…. Again, the Commission seems almost contemptuous of the limitations placed on it by the constitution and a long body of redistricting law.

Redistricting Alert! Please help tonight, if possible!

 



Please take a moment to help with the Senate Seat- they will be discussing it tomorrow- Saturday!

 

Today, the Redistricting Commission drew a Senate seat that included Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley and Moorpark together and whole.  That seat, affected by other seats, can go one of two places:  either can go to Santa Clarita or go to Encino, Malibu and Pacific Palisades.  The maps were visualized taking us to the latter.  

 

Linking us to Ventura Blvd and Malibu guarantees LA representation that is out of touch with our needs.  Santa Clarita is a similar community that will share our interests- we've been connected to them in the Senate for over 30 years.

 

We need to write the commission TONIGHT and tell them to change the lines and link East Ventura County to Santa Clarita in the State Senate Seat.

 

Here's what to do:

 

2) Put your name and email in the box.

3) Region is Ventura County

4) Subject is:  Connect East Ventura County to Santa Clarita

5) Copy the text below into the Your Message box:

6) Email support@suburbancommunities.org   when you've finished so we can track the comments.

 

Message:

 

Friday you reviewed visualizations that affected our community. Before you finish this draft map, please consider this:

 

East Ventura County was linked to Malibu, Pacific Palisades and along the 101 corridor in the Valley. This goes against the public testimony you have received and the direction you have given. It is important to connect East Ventura County with Santa Clarita.

 

Instead of East Ventura County with Malibu or Ventura Blvd. in the Valley, you should draw the Santa Clarita area with East Ventura County.

 

Keeping Thousand Oaks, Moorpark and Simi Valley connected to Santa Clarita in a Senate seat will keep inland valleys together and better represented.  Historically, for over 30 years, these areas have been connected in a Senate seat. Please draw a district that will best represent us and link East Ventura County to Santa Clarita.

 

Thank you.

 

ICYMI
THE REDISTRICTING COMMISSION - WORSE THAN I COULD POSSIBLY IMAGINE

By Thomas Del Beccaro, CRP Chairman (as seen in FlashReport.org)

The ideal of a citizens' commission is good. We should not have politicians picking their voters. Voters should pick their politicians and perhaps the districts lines in which they run. But ideals often prove impractical. In the case of the Citizens Redistricting Commission, impractical would be an upgrade.

When I testified in front of the Commission in March of this year, I warned them of the voters' cynicism - the sense of many that their vote doesn't count because district lines are rigged and the system, i.e. gerrymandering, is unfair. I asked them not to hire a line-drawing firm that did not have the experience required and noted that what experience it had was too partisan.

After the Commission discarded my advice and that of many others, I publicly decried the Commission's process for hiring Q2 in an article entitled Caesar's Wife and the Redistricting Commissions. From the original no bid contract attempt to hire them, to the dumbing down of the Commission's so-called qualification standards, to disqualifying their competition, The Rose Institute, on bogus grounds, to not disqualifying Q2 - the Commission's hiring of Q2 was beyond suspect.

Many, like me, believed that Q2's limited experience drawing lines (just 19 districts drawn, covering 2 separate jurisdictions) meant that they were not up to the job. But how bad could it be? They only had to draw 177 districts in the largest state in the Union amongst the stare of partisanship and the glare of the Internet/Cable Age? How bad? Worse than I could possibly imagine.

You see, Q2 has fallen so desperately behind that they are outsourcing one of their core functions - the production of district maps. Incredibly, and outside public view, unvetted third parties will undertake that portion of Q2's work. Further, Q2 is abandoning promised work by deciding not to publish their promised second round of maps; nor will they take any more public comment. To the contrary, they are now just going to publish their final set of maps, at the July 28th deadline, without producing the maps for everyone to see.

How did it get to this point? Was Q2 solely to blame? In a word: no. The Commission, dominated by partisan Democrats who never should have been allowed to serve, hired a securities lawyer as outside Voting Rights Act counsel who had no real Voting Rights Act experience, and a former government lawyer as inside counsel who was unfamiliar with the Voting Rights Act and public meetings laws. Rather than engage those unqualified consultants early in the process, apparently the Commission waited until after they published preliminary maps to do so - preliminary maps which failed to meet state constitutional reasonably equal population standards, which did not consider where federal law required drawing of Voting Rights Act Section 2 "majority minority" districts, which did not adequately deal with Voting Rights Act Section 5 retrogression, and failed to nest two Assembly districts within Senate districts.

What of the actual maps, you ask? Has this partisanship and incompetence led to unfair districts? While the situation is still fluid, the existing "visualizations" that divide Sacramento into five Senate districts hardly sounds logical. Putting Fair Oaks in the same district as a town on the Oregon border hardly fulfills the mandate to create communities of interest any more than placing San Ramon in with Fremont. Dividing Ventura County to destroy two Republican leaning seats -- to create two Democrat seats at the behest of a Democrat on the Commission who donated to a candidate who ran against one of those Republicans - hardly sounds, well, fair. And yes, there are other egregious examples.

It has been said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The intentions of Prop 11 and 20 were indeed good. But the process intended to provide fair redistricting has been overtaken by partisanship and incompetence. The truly fair-minded people on the Commission cannot allow this process to be cynically hijacked. It is time for them to vote down any plans that remotely resemble the most recent visualizations. It is also time for Californians to consider saving themselves from the Commission they created, even if that means by referendum.

Senate Maps referendum

 

It's game on in the fight to fix the faulty Senate maps, and we need you to be a part of it.  

 

The California Republican Party has been challenging the Commission throughout the summer to provide a fair and transparent process, but the Redistricting Commission produced maps that were both unfair and unconstitutional.   

 

We have an opportunity to right a wrong, but time of is of the essence.  

 

The CRP is supporting efforts by F.A.I.R (Fairness and Accountability In Redistricting) to have the Redistricting Commission's Senate maps redrawn to make them more fair and competitive. Here is the plan and how you can make that a reality:

  1. To qualify this measure, we need 504,000 valid petition signatures. Please sign up HERE to volunteer to help the CRP gather signatures. Remember, time is of the essence!
  2. Once you've signed up, we'll make sure you get petitions ASAP, either through your county GOP office or the CRP headquarters in Sacramento and Burbank.  
  3. We'll also send you talking points and a list of Frequently Asked Questions that will prepare you to talk confidently about the referendum with local voters.

After you've filled your petitions, please mail them back to the CRP at: 

California Republican Party

1215 K Street

Suite 1220

Sacramento, CA 95835

(*The CRP is not responsible for return shipping, and cannot guarantee petition availability.)  

 

We need to get started right away because we have less than 80 days to submit the signatures! If you need more background on the redistricting process, check out my article on Fox and Hounds Daily.

 

Redistricting maps are too important for California's future to allow mistakes to go unchallenged just because some say "at least they're better than the ones the Legislature would draw."

 

Join the referendum effort today. Sign up HERE to help gather the signatures needed to put the referendum to repeal the faulty CRC Senate maps.

  

If you need any further help, please don't hesitate to call us at 916-448-9496. Don't miss your opportunity to be a part of something historic. 

 

Thank you for your continued support and commitment on this issue of vital importance.

 

All the best,

“The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.” – James Madison

Only in America could liberals talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

We need to demythologize guns before the liberal attempt to create a totemic fear of them succeeds. If the gun control mentality promoting fear of guns themselves becomes our national mentality, we would turn the clock back to the days when a warrior class ruled over the people because only they had the confidence and expertise to deploy the means of defense and coercion. The gun control agenda will turn us into a people too timid to defend themselves from our would-be masters. – Alan Keyes
