WHO WILL BE OUR NEXT CONGRESSPERSON?

Don Gosney
By:

Most people understand that every ten years, after the data from the latest census is collected, electoral districts are redrawn.

By law, who currently serves a community cannot be factored in.  There are a series of criteria that must be considered but actual population is the foremost component.

RFR_Current_11th_Congressional.jpg

Locally, many of our community leaders have been weighing in on where the lines should be drawn to decide where the City Council districts will be.  And then there are the school district wards.

What’s been largely ignored, though, is the 11th Congressional District.

For several decades the Richmond area was represented by Congressman George Miller.  When Congressman Miller retired, the Richmond area could count on Congressman Mark DeSaulnier to speak for this area.

But the proposed new boundaries for the 11th Congressional District are outside of where Congressman DeSaulnier resides.

RFR___Proposed_11th_Congressional.jpgSlightly north of the 11th District is an area represented by Congressman Mike Thompson from St. Helena.

The new 11th District will now encompass all of West County plus Albany.  It will also stretch to the western edge of Antioch.  Heading north, this district will reach all the way to Travis Air Force Base and include Vallejo, Fairfield and will stop on the southern edge of Vacaville.

Since Congressmen DeSaulnier and Thompson reside outside of these new boundaries, it is unlikely that they will choose to run to represent the 11th Congressional District (a Congressman does not have to reside in the district being represented.  Just a few years back this district was represented by Congressman John Garamendi whose home was several hundred feet north of the boundaries in Elk Grove east of Sacramento.).

Without an incumbent, who will step forward to convince the electorate that they can represent the extremely diverse residents of this new Congressional District?  Perhaps someone from Fairfield or Benicia?  Or even Albany?

Whomever is elected to represent this district will have zero seniority.  This means that it may take a decade or more for them to be appointed to a choice committee to serve on.  And there is always a chance that the newly elected Congressman may even be a conservative—maybe even an actual Republican.

    I tried getting a car loan sometime last year but my credit score of about 521 ruined the process. Since I was in desperate need of a car due to the nature of my new job, I resorted to making online research on how I could restore my credit to a minimum of 650 to enable me to qualify, after a few months of searching, I bumped into a blog and found positive reviews about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST, So I reached out to them to explain my credit situation, they requested my info and necessary details and were able to get every derogatory item on my report erased and increased my FICO score to 788 within 6 days, I was amazed. They are fast and reliable. Anyone looking for a credit solution below is their contact details:

    CYBERCREDITGURU has been amazing to work with! They have creative, knowledgeable professional hackers that make the entire process a great experience. I am a widow with 3 children. I started working with CYBERCREDITGURU two years ago when I had a very poor credit score of 403, with negatives, late payments and evictions. I couldn’t afford a loan to even pay off my basic bills for the up keep of my children. Life was so terrible then. I came across a highly rated reviews about them online and I contacted them on CYBERCREDITGURU (AT) GMAIL DOT COM and phone/text: +1 (650) 439 0624. Lo and behold they got my FICO score raised to 805 and every other negative item cleared within 6 days after following all instructions. Last week I contacted them again for my daughter’s school grade and they got it upgraded excellently within 3 days. I recommend CYBERCREDITGURU to all who have hacking related issues. They are the BEST!

    Tracing who’s the owner of a wallet isn’t as easy as any other thing as the Cryptocurrency keeps the details as privacy. It only takes a kind of high Tech Expert to get through that.

    And again there are lots of scammers out there who claim to help but end up becoming a scammer as well. That’s is why Globalspytech is here to help you in situations like this.

    Hello guys, I just want to share my joyful experience about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST. Before the coronavirus pandemic, I had criminal Judgments, few evictions, and late payment which negatively impacted my credit score down to 487 and left me in difficult financial situation, as a single mum of 3, I needed a loan to keep the family running after I lost my husband as a result of COVID-19, all hope were lost, until Mrs. Olivia referred me to HACK VANISH, a credit genius who was very helpful in fixing my credit 6 days after I reached out to him via Email: hackvanish (At) gmail (Dot) com and Phone: +1(747) 293-8514, throughout the process, I felt so involved because an open line of communication was maintained till I got my FICO score restored to 796, currently my loan application has been approved. If you need to hire a credible hacker, HACK VANISH is highly recommended.
