"The opportunity to help realize an equitable and transparent redistricting process on behalf of the citizens of San Diego is an opportunity I didnít want to wait ten more years to pursue. I look forward to working with my colleagues and fellow residents to ensure the map we recommend for the coming decade is reflective of the rich diversity of America's finest city."
