First round of redistricting crosses county line

The first round of proposed new California Assembly and Senate districts have been released by the non-partisan California Citizens Redistricting Commission.

The map illustrating this post shows the proposed “WSTAN” district (no numbers have been assigned yet).

The first thing that I noticed was that the district crosses into Los Angeles County to pick up Cerritos and Artesia.

The Commission started out with a goal of not crossing county lines, and keeping cities as whole as possible. Whoops.

Cypress shares little with Santa Ana. The city fits better with Rossmoor, Los Alamitos and Buena Park.
