Maps Below:  State Assembly | State Senate | Congressional

 

The final maps for the new Assembly, State Senate and Congressional Districts were published on Monday, June 10. A non-partisan commission has been holding hearings across the state to determine the boundaries. The maps for San Diego County have not substantially changed. The maps for Del Mar are unchanged from the preliminary maps.

 

State Assembly Districts

 
State Assembly Districts
 

For State Assembly, Del Mar is now included in an Assembly district that stretches from Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe through La Jolla (along the coast) to San Diego south of Balboa and east to I-15 and then south through downtown San Diego to Coronado. This district is currently mostly represented by Toni Atkins – a former San Diego City Councilmember. This district has a larger number of registered Democrats than Republicans. Toni Aktins will run for reelection in this area. The current district of Martin Garrick now includes Encinitas, Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista – a solidly Republican district. In 2012 this district will have an open seat as Martin Garrick has “termed out.”

 

State Senate Districts

 
State Senate Districts
 

For State Senate, Del Mar is now in a district that encompasses the Assembly district and also includes National City, Chula Vista and Imperial Beach. This district includes areas represented by Christine Kehoe and Juan Vargas. In 2012, Christine will be “termed out” and based upon the preliminary maps for Congressional Districts and that Bob Filner announced that he will run for the mayor of the City of San Diego, Juan Vargas will run for Congress in a district that encompasses most of south San Diego County and all of Imperial County. Our State Senate district will most likely have an open seat. Assemblyman Marty Block is the likely Democratic candidate for that seat. The district has a much larger number of registered Democrats than Republicans.

 

State Congressional Districts

For Congress Del Mar has been included in a district that runs from the Orange County border through most of Fallbrook, all of Oceanside, Vista, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe (almost east to Escondido), Solana Beach through Torrey Pines Mesa and UCSD and the commercial section of UTC. Some of this district is represented by Darrell Issa and he will seek reelection in this district. The district has a much larger number of registered Republicans than Democrats.

 

Del Mar
Formerly, Del Mar was in the 50th District represented by Republican Brian Bilbray. The district encompassed Carlsbad, San Marcos, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, Carmel Valley, coastal La Jolla and much of the Clairmont area. The new 52nd district has moved to the south and now includes Carmel Valley, Rancho Penasquitos, Poway, the city of San Diego through Kearney Mesa, Serra Mesa, Linda Vista, La Jolla, Pacific Beach, downtown San Diego and Coronado. The district is pretty much evenly divided between registered Republicans and Democrats. Brian Bilbray has recently moved to Clairmont and will seek reelection in this new district. On the Democratic side – Lori Saldena a former Assembly member in this district has stated she will run. Bob Nascenzi a business person living in Carmel Valley has also formed a committee to run. Scott Peters a former San Diego City Council member is polling to see if he has enough support to win the seat. This will be a very hotly contested seat given the registration numbers.
