L.A. City Council redistricting, revised proposal

    A city com­mis­sion has re­vised changes to the lines that define Los Angeles City Coun­cil dis­tricts. The first draft drew hun­dreds of people to pub­lic hear­ings and triggered protests from such var­ied com­munit­ies as Sher­man Oaks, Sun­land-Tujunga, Watts, Bald­win Hills, En­cino and down­town. They also have brought heated ex­changes between coun­cil mem­bers, com­munity ad­voc­ates and com­mis­sion­ers. — Los Angeles Times  Feb. 17, 2012
