Redistricting Sonoma County

Don’t Let Redistricting
Get Santa Rosa Stuck in Lodi!

The first cut of redistricting maps for a proposed state Senate District carves out Santa Rosa, Cotati, Rohnert Park, and Sebastopol from Sonoma County and joins them in a new district with Lodi, Galt, and Woodland.

The heart of Sonoma County belongs in a blue coastal district, not as an appendage to the Central Valley!

The California Citizens Redistricting Commission has a legal mission to keep intact “communities of interests.” Haven’t they heard we’re united by water, economy, transportation, energy, agriculture, education, local governance and left coast culture?

at the:
Cowell Theatre
Fort Mason Center
Marina Blvd and Buchanan Street Entrance
San Francisco 
Monday, June 27th from 6 to 9 pm

For more information on speaking at the public hearing go to You can also view the draft maps at this site.

Speaking has the greatest impact, but if you can’t attend, please email your comments to

New maps will be released July 12 

– a final decision in August. 
Now is the time to be heard!
