Revised Council Ward boundaries are set for approval at Tuesday’s Santa Ana City Council meeting. Ward boundaries have not been changed since 1992 and are required due to population shifts since then. The significance of the Ward boundaries is limited to the residency of candidates to represent specific wards. Election of Council members is conducted city wide.
It’s concerning that members of the City Council found it important to participate in the State and County redistricting processes and join the public to present their recommendations and concerns. Yet in the case of their own process, they failed to offer the residents of Santa Ana the same opportunity.
