Do I think you should spend your time on redistricting? Not really, but You Make The Call on that one.
Hey, here’s how the first draft looks. Less of the Gerrymander, huh? (So far, anyway.)

Oh, you’re still here? Well, take a look at what SFGov has for you, Dear Voter. It’s the San Francisco Redistricting Webinar.
All the deets:
“Your Turn to Draw the Lines, San Francisco!
Get trained on www.ReDrawSF.org to make your voice heard. Healthy City continues to support California redistricting by launching local redistricting GIS capabilities in San Francisco. We created a customized, user friendly website – www.ReDrawSF.org- for the public to participate in the process. On the website, you can draw your own ideas for district lines to submit and save or print your maps to present to the San Francisco Redistricting Task Force. As you adjust the district boundaries you will immediately see how demographics change and can make sure your proposals fit the redistricting criteria used by the Task Force. You can access redistricting data and a variety of other community data in order to create maps, tables, and charts to submit them as public testimony or to just stay informed. You will also be able to view official draft maps released by the Task Force and see the demographic affects they will have on communities.
