“The 14 member Independent California Citizens Redistricting Commission will hold a public input
meeting in San Francisco on June 27, 2011, from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at the Fort Mason Center. 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.”

Ever more deets, after the jump

And actually, they have a whole state tour going on these days. Deets below.
