Most recent State Senate maps reconnects Elk Grove with Sacramento

The California State Senate maps released by the California Citizen Redistricting Commission on November 7 revealed a district more closely aligned with the current configuration.

The new map (see above) has the district's northern border set at the Sacramento County border and includes Elk Grove as its southern border. The west border is roughly the Sacramento River, and the eastern border zig-zags through unincorporated portions of Sacramento County.

There are two leading declared candidates to date for the seat that will succeed Dr. Richard Pan, who is term-limited. The candidates are Democrats and Sacramento City Council Members Angelique Ashby and Eric Guerra.  

Previous maps released by the commission had Elk Grove as a northern border combined with Stockton. That map was viewed as less favorable to Elk Grove's interest's as the likely representative would likely be Stockton-based and less in tune with the city's needs.

The commission is expected to release more maps this week for the State Assembly, State Senate, and U.S.Congressional districts. Information about the commission and public participation can be viewed here
