demographer. There will also be attorneys' fees paid to Kevin Shenkman on behalf of <br /> Southwest Voter Registration Education Project of not more than $30,000. <br /> Then, after each census, districts will need to be reconfigured with demographer <br /> assistance. <br /> BACKGROUND <br /> On September 21, 2021, after the City received a letter from attorney Kevin Shenkman <br /> on behalf of Southwest Voter Registration Education Project asserting the City's at-large <br /> councilmember election system violates the California Voting Rights Act ("CVRA") and <br /> threatening litigation, the City Council adopted a resolution of intention to transition from <br /> at-large to district-based elections in conformance with the CVRA (Resolution No. 21- <br /> 1240). This transition would be implemented for the November 2022 general municipal <br /> election. <br /> Pursuant to Elections Code Section 10010, on January 4, 2022 and January 18, 2022, <br /> the City Council held public hearings to consider input from the public on the <br /> composition of the Council districts and criteria for determining district boundaries. The <br /> City Council considered all oral and written information, testimony, and comments <br /> received during the public review process. On January 18, 2022, the City Council <br /> directed its demographer to develop at least three map options. <br /> The City Council also held public hearings on February 3, 2022, and February 24, 2022, <br /> where the public was invited to provide comments and input on the draft maps and the <br /> proposed sequence of elections. Prior to the public hearing on February 3, 2022, the <br /> City published draft maps that were discussed at that public hearing, and prior to the <br /> public hearing on February 24, 2022, the City published additional draft maps that were <br /> discussed at that public hearing. <br /> At a public hearing on February 24, 2022, the City Council voted to proceed with the <br /> attached map and to sequence elections such that elections for Districts 1 and 3 would <br /> occur at the November 2022 municipal election, and every four years thereafter, and <br /> elections for Districts 2 and 4 would occur at the November 2024 municipal election, <br /> and every four years thereafter. <br /> DISCUSSION <br /> The attached ordinance provides that Councilmembers shall be elected on a district- <br /> based electoral system in four single-member districts. <br /> The Councilmember elected to represent a district must live in that district and be a <br /> registered voter in that district, and any candidate for City Council must live in, and be a <br /> registered voter in the district in which he or she seeks election at the time nomination <br /> papers are issued. <br /> Page 2 of 3 <br />
