Please ask County Recorder-Assessor to check precinct boundaries for your district

Dear Supervisor Hopkins,

It has been brought to the attention of Sebastopol Water Information Group that the County may not have properly allied electoral district boundaries with tax districts; for example, an inquiry turned up the information that a precinct just outside Sebastopol has been assigned to a lighting district in Sonoma Valley.

Report of a cursory review found 63 electoral districts with an issue, and a more careful investigation is likely to find many more.  The investigator predicts that well over 50 will prove to have a boundary not aligned to the proper tax district. Please ask the now County Clerk/Recorder-Assessor for a careful audit of district boundaries for County Supervisor District 5.

The County needs to make sure that the data has integrity, and the resources to make corrections where needed, so that the citizens will not be voting for representatives or tax measures that do not relate to them.

Sincerely,

Jane Nielson
Sebastopol Water Information Group
