State Redistricting Made Final, Imperial Beach to Enter New Congressional District

A state committee approves final changes to redistricting, which will make Imperial Beach part of the 51st Congressional District currently represented by Congressman Bob Filner, who is running for mayor of San Diego.

The California Citizens Redistricting Commission finalized its redrawing of state legislative district lines Monday.

Lines are redrawn every decade following the release of results, and will go into effect following 2012 elections.

Imperial Beach will remain in the 79th State Assembly District, which will be renamed the 78th State Assembly District and is represented by Ben Hueso, and in the 40th State Senate District represented by Juan Vargas.

But IB will move into the 51st Congressional District currently represented by Congressman Bob Filner (D) and out of the 53rd currently represented by Congresswoman Susan Davis (D).

The 51st comprises parts of San Diego, National City, Chula Vista, the Salton Sea and border towns from IB to the California-Arizona border.

Filner's office could not be reached for comment by the end of the day Monday. His local office is located at 333 F St. in Chula Vista.

Clarification: The original version of this article read that Bob Filner is now the Congressman for Imperial Beach since redistricting was made final, but new representation will not be final until new elections are held in 2012.

I have lived in areas represented by Bob Finer for years and I have found him to be attentive to his constituents and he is passionate about his beliefs. He was one of the Freedom Riders in the 60s and he has carried on supporting under represented folks throughout his political career.

Davis to Filner; from bad to worse.

I am glad that Bob stood up and did something right as a Freedom Fighter but that was 50 YEARS ago. Bob, please end your political career and go get a real JOB (and I don't mean as a lobbyist for a company you now regulate).
