Fellow San Diegan,
San Diego’s Redistricting Commission is in a “once every ten years” process of drawing new lines for council districts, adjusting for population growth, shifts, etc.
The Commission’s charter requires that commissioners have “a demonstrated capacity to serve with impartiality in a non-partisan role” and that they be San Diego residents.
Commissioner Carlos Marquez is neither of those things.
For starters, he is the co-founder of the New Leaders Council – a labor union front group – and used to work as an SEIU organizer. He is not a run-of-the-mill average concerned citizen, but someone with a clear political agenda.
