TRUSTEE AREA ELECTIONS
PUBLIC ASKED TO HELP DRAW TRUSTEE AREA BOUNDARIES FOR WCCUSD BOARD OF EDUCATION
RICHMOND—Community members are invited to attend map planning sessions where they can work with a demographer to draw trustee area boundaries for the November 2020 election for West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) Board of Education members.
The District agreed to transition from its current at-large system of electing members to the Board of Education to one in which Board members are chosen by trustee areas in response to a lawsuit that claimed the District’s elections were racially polarized and violated the California Voting Rights Act.
Three new maps have been published for the public and Board to consider as starting points to the discussion. Those maps may be viewed at https://www.wccusd.net/Page/10828.
Sessions will be held as follows:
Monday, October 29 at 6:30 p.m.
Stege Elementary School
4949 Cypress Ave., Richmond
Tuesday, October 30 at 10 a.m.
The Latina Center
3701 Barrett Ave., Richmond
Trustee areas will not be in effect for the upcoming November 2018 election. However, successful candidates for the three open Board of Education seats in November will be limited to two-year terms in order to facilitate the transition to trustee area elections in 2020.
The sessions will allow community members to review proposed maps and work with a demographer to make suggestions on how the trustee area boundaries should be drawn.
