After dozens of meetings (at least one of which lasted 19 hours), curse words, charges of class warfare and voter suppression, and more, San Francisco’s Redistricting Task Force says it has its final map of the city’s 11 supervisor districts. As longtime columnist C.W. Nevius wrote in his newsletter, the contentious, poorly run process was “an unmitigated civic embarrassment.”
After all of the drama, the major changes in the once-a-decade redrawing of district lines include moving Portola to District 9 and moving the Tenderloin to District 5. The map needs to be ratified by the city attorney.
