Supervisors OK redistricting proposal that would put La Jolla in Roberts’ district

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors gave its unanimous support Tuesday to one of three proposed redistricting plans.

The biggest change district boundaries under “Draft Plan 5-7,” would to be to push Supervisor Ron Roberts’ landlocked district toward the coast, and Pam Slater-Price would lose La Jolla while gaining University City and Mira Mesa.

Roberts also would get a larger part of the downtown district represented by Greg Cox.

A final map will be voted on in August.

Other supervisorial districts would be changed little. In the North County, Chairman Bill Horn’s district would extend from Camp Pendleton and Carlsbad east through his home turf of Valley Center to rural northeast parts of the county.

Dianne Jacob would continue representing the East County, while Greg Cox would continue to have the South Bay, Coronado, part of downtown and Point Loma.

Roberts would still represent much of central San Diego, while Slater-Price would keep North County coastal areas.

The other two plans recommended by an advisory committee did essentially the same things.

Slater-Price said she was happy to keep Escondido and its developing arts scene, and she noted that University City was in her district 10 years ago.

“The rest of my district is pretty much as is,” Slater-Price said. She said the process was not an easy task.

The committee members, who met 14 times, were tasked with redrawing district boundaries based on 2010 census data. Their proposed plans, for the most part, do not divide cities other than San Diego.

The supervisors, with their 5-0 vote, asked staffers to refine the boundaries of the tentative plan and return with an ordinance in July. They were also asked to review an alternate plan submitted by ACLU lawyer Lori Shellenberger, who said the committee’s proposed districts violate the Voting Rights Act.
