Stan Forbes of Esparto, one of the 14 members of California’s Citizens Redistricting Commission, discusses how the panel will go about the job of redrawing legislative and congressional districts in the state on the next edition of “Davisville” on KDRT-LP, 95.7 FM.

Forbes, a businessman, farmer and former Davis City Council member, is the only person on the commission from greater Sacramento. Just getting appointed required a mix of determination and luck, a process he talks about with “Davisville” host Bill Buchanan.

California voters created the commission to draw new district lines according to strict, nonpartisan rules, based on the 2010 census. The current districts, set by elected state officials, have been widely criticized as drawn to protect the political status quo.

Forbes believes the commission, which will start public hearings soon, could create a model for other states to follow.

“Davisville” airs at 5:30 p.m. Monday, 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and 10:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. The interview with Forbes will be broadcast beginning Monday and continuing through March 23. It is also available anytime in the program archives at http://www.kdrt.org.
