If the commission adopts the suggestions contained in the Community In Unity Map, it will create a Latino/Immigrant Coalition District, strengthen the LGBT District 3 and reflect the enormous changes in the demographics of San Diego that have occurred over the last decade. This is a good thing!

"I am appalled that Mr. Ramirez, unable to defend his position by strong argument or benefit to the communities in question, stoops to the lowest form of race baiting. He attacks a group of people whose only sin is working really hard to empower the LGBT and Latino communities."
To ensure that this LGBT-friendly council district is preserved, the LGBT community needs to prove that it is a Community of Interest. This can be accomplished through a strong, consistent, and organized show of support at local hearings.
