Press Release Just Issued from Congressman Bilbray’s camp:
(SAN DIEGO, CA) – Congressman Brian Bilbray released the following statement on the new congressional district boundaries proposed by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission:
“The preliminary maps released by the Citizens Redistricting Commission have ensured that communities of interest are not divided and that political partisanship is not a factor in the districts created to represent San Diegans.
Some of these changes unite communities I currently represent along with the communities I represented while serving my first six years in Congress and all the way back to my days as County Supervisor. I will remain an effective representative for San Diegans in Congress in this proposed new district, which includes Poway and the city of San Diego. The new boundaries also include this city in which I was born, Coronado.
I intend to run for reelection in this district. I will continue to work to create an environment where small businesses can grow and create jobs, cut wasteful Washington spending, and keep our border secure. As a member of the House Energy & Commerce Committee, I am better positioned than ever to be a strong in Washington for the people of San Diego.”
