    Exactly how is the Kim Nguyen map advantageous to Latino Voters? Im hearing complaints by those involved in this process that it furthers the dominance of the Vietnamese Population to the disadvantage of Latinos. can anyone clarify this?

      It takes the north central part of town and instead of following the city’s historical horizontal development flow, slices and dices vertically with presumption that the Vietnamese community will be going northward. If that is what will happen, than this map needs to be presented after the 2020 census. For now, it disregards established neighborhood enclaves. Who knows why. The LULACers seem hot for it at the meetings. Political maneuvering, maybe?

        Its very curious for sure. I read the percentages of the voting age population. Latinos only have a majority in one district and only by 10%. Their historic turnout is dismal. This seems intentional to me. The Kim Nguyen/ Lou Correa map puts latinos in a seriously compromising position seeing as how the lawsuit was based on lack of latinos on the dais. This will cement that fact in civic code.

    What? “historic partnership”? Wasn’t the lawsuit generated exactly because the Latino group was not liking all the Vietnamese people serving on City Council and as Mayor to no Latino ever?
