Orange County Won’t Seek AG Bonta’s Opinion on Redistricting Before Election
The Orange County Board of Supervisors will not hear state Attorney General Rob Bonta’s opinion on the timing of recent district boundary changes, despite a request from Supervisor Katrina Foley.
Orange County draws new district lines based on census data every 10 years to balance changes in population numbers in the county. In November, the board approved the new map based on 2020 census data and adopted it in January.
Foley—whose District 2 has completely changed from the north coast region to central Orange County by the redistricting—questioned why the county implemented the new boundaries immediately, considering that 2022 is an election year.
