City Hall at Your Corner – Special Discussion on Electoral Districts for Cathedral City
June 7, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree Admission
Have an issue you would like to speak to your city councilmembers about or learn what is happening in Cathedral City? Then join us for “City Hall at Your Corner” hosted by two members of the City Council, Stan Henry and Mark Carnevalle.
This “City Hall at Your Corner” will also serve as a Special Discussion on Electoral Districts as the City transitions from “at-large” to “by-district” elections for members of the City Council starting with the November 2018 general election.
On March 8, 2017 the City Council approved a Resolution initiating procedures for establishing and implementing by-district elections for City Council Members, which is consistent with Elections Code section 10010. The City Council also approved a Resolution specifying the criteria to guide the establishment of electoral districts which will be followed in drawing proposed district lines. These criteria require the districts to be roughly equal in population, and drawn in a manner that does not result in a denial or abridgement of the right of any citizen to vote on account of race or color.
“City Hall at Your Corner” is scheduled once a month at various locations throughout the City and at different times of the day to make it accessible to most schedules and close proximity to all residents. It is your opportunity to share your ideas, let the council know your concerns, and also hear the latest news. Best of all, the discussion is free!
