I would be interested to hear from Supervisor Simitian why he voted No. I consider him a pair of safe hands. I have no opinion as to the merits of the various maps at this time.

Your "article" doesn't say *why* the vote was 3-2, it just says "conservatives" objected. I m far from whatever "conservative" seems to mean these days, BUT I agree with the first post--it would be very helpful for me to know why Sup. Simitian voted no. I have long respected him, even if we might disagree on specific issues.
