2. San Bernardino County Redistricting Maps Advancing:

This coming week’s meeting is another evening meeting, so take advantage of this opportunity to attend in person to review the maps that are currently being worked on.  While Redlands is, at the moment, scheduled to remain in the district where it was for the last decade, attending and sharing feedback lets the advisory commission know that we, the voters, care and are watching what they are doing.

At our October meeting, a speaker from Common Cause explained that the Constitution requires that districts contain equal populations. The goal is also to ensure that no group becomes disenfranchised by having a majority population divided so that they make up the minority in several districts or that they are all clumped into one district, and that way also have their voices suppressed.

3. Crucial Pending Legislation: Voting Rights and Full Infrastructure Bill

What is happening with both of these key pieces of legislation is in flux, and voting and strategies are changing from day to day.  

Nevertheless, securing voting rights is vital for the 2022 general election, let alone in 2024.  Overcoming Republican Party opposition would require making modifications to the filibuster.

In addition, taking long-overdue action now to aggressively address climate change (and all Democrats must vote YES so that it can pass via reconciliation) along with the other vital investments needed to move our country and our economy forward must happen. The two conservative Democrats (Manchin and Sinema) appear to be talking with President Biden and the leader of the progressive caucus Rep. Jayapal, so there is hope that this ambitious and vital bill will pass. But our voices may also be needed.

Keep an eye on our social media in the upcoming two weeks for any quick turnaround messages to send to Rep. Pete Aguilar and/or Senators Feinstein and Padilla and even President Biden and Vice President Harris.

  • REMINDER:  Voting Rights:  New *Water* Redistricting Information

No new information available.  Here is a link to the current maps of the IE’s water districts: 


We will continue to keep you up to date on redistricting efforts around our county (they voted NO on any meeting[s] in Redlands) and water districts and any further City redistricting news.


“Anyone who wants to fill the position would have to live in the area Foster represents, District 5, which is the south side of the city. If the council decides to call a special election it would likely be in the statewide primary on June 7, 2022. 

“Whomever [sic] fills the vacancy will hold office for the rest of Foster’s unexpired term, which ends in December 2022 after the November 2022 election results are certified by the county, Baker said."
