Shape City of Martinez's Future as an Independent Redistricting Commissioner
Here's an opportunity to help Martinez.  Citizens are needed to serve on the Independent Redistricting Commission.
  
Every ten years, local governments use new census data to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed.

The Independent Redistricting Commission will be holding hearings and workshops to receive public input on where district lines should be drawn. 

 Seven commissioners will serve on the Independent Redistricting Commission, with two alternates. The first four commissioners will be randomly selected by the Deputy City Clerk from geographic quadrants of the City, and the remaining three commissioners will be selected by majority vote of the initial four randomly selected commissioners.
