A coalition of civil rights groups is proposing to reapportion the Los Angeles City Council to create two heavily Latino districts in the San Fernando Valley, with the second seat probably going initially to a refugee lawmaker displaced from the Westside. Broad outlines of the plan by the Latino Redistricting Coalition of Los Angeles have been worked out, but a detailed map won't be ready until next week, leaders of the group say.

Activists with a long history of involvement in redistricting battles are mounting a four-pronged push to give Latino candidates a better chance to win local offices in the Los Angeles area. The group, known as the Los Angeles City/County Latino Redistricting Coalition, is simultaneously urging the expansion of county, city, school district and community college governing bodies, as well as a change from at-large to smaller district elections of community college board members.

A coalition of Latino groups drawing a reapportionment plan for Los Angeles school board districts mistakenly put board members Julie Korenstein and Roberta Weintraub in the same San Fernando Valley district, where they would have to run against each other. But the coalition plans to rectify the error before the incumbents get annoyed enough to fight the plan.

With only one day left to submit alternative proposals, parents from the Westside to the San Fernando Valley have vowed to fight a plan that would reapportion the Los Angeles Unified School District, giving Latinos more political power but diluting the strength of existing voting blocs.

A group of San Fernando Valley parents has vowed to battle a redistricting proposal that would provide for a second Latino representative on the Los Angeles school board but would carve up the Valley in the process. The map submitted by the Latino Redistricting Coalition would increase Latino power on the board by pairing a chunk of the Eastside district represented by incumbent Leticia Quezada with a section of the northeastern Valley. The two enclaves would be connected by a narrow strip.

A redistricting plan that would give Los Angeles' Latino community more political clout in the running of the nation's second largest school system has been drawn up by a group of Latino activists. The map, to be unveiled at a City Council hearing tonight, would improve the chances for a second Latino to win election to the seven-member Board of Education, which governs a school system that is 64% Latino.

A Latino group Monday amended its proposal to reapportion Los Angeles school board seats, drawing separate districts for board members Roberta Weintraub and Julie Korenstein so they would not have to run against each other. An earlier remapping plan by the same group, the Latino Redistricting Coalition of Los Angeles, inadvertently placed both in the same San Fernando Valley-based district.
