Santa Rosa Political Earthquake Coming

Greetings!

This Tuesday's Santa Rosa City Council Agenda's last item is an earth-shaker.

"14.3 REPORT - RESOLUTION - CALIFORNIA VOTING RIGHTS ACT

BACKGROUND:  On July 17, 2017, the City received a claim alleging that the City’s at-large election of councilmembers is in violation of the California Voting Rights Act.

RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by the City Attorney that the Council, by resolution, state its intent to respond to claim regarding the City’s compliance with the California Voting Rights Act. "

We might as well declare a political emergency, and admit that everything else the City is doing is now on the back burner.  The City has 90 days to act if it wishes to avoid the payment of large legal fees, and the imposition of district election boundaries by a judge.
