Slice up SLO town?
Following Paso, AG aaaand Grover Beach, SLO was threatened to be slapped with a lawsuit asserting the City’s use of at-large elections violates the CA Voter Rights Act. The concept is that city-wide elections (vs. district voting) for coveted spots like Council seats can dilute minority and protected class representation in areas of the city. So is SLO headed for splittsville? For now, the City Attorney requested a hot minute or two while they see if another path is a better option.
