Dear Neighbors,

Thank you for visiting my website. I am very proud to represent the Second Senatorial District in the State Capitol! The Second Senatorial District covers all or portions of the counties of: Humboldt, Mendocino, Lake, Sonoma, Napa, and Solano.

With such a giant district it can be challenging to stay in touch with our numerous and diverse communities. I hope you are able to use this website to communicate questions and concerns to me, learn more about California State Government, and find new ways to engage in our community.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve the Second Senatorial District. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if there is anything I can do to assist you.

Very Truly Yours,

Noreen Evans
California State Senator
Second Senatorial District

 

2013-2014 Senate Redistricting Changes and Senate District 2

Due to redistricting, Senate districts have a unique issue that Assembly and Congressional districts do not have. Of the Senate districts established by the Citizens Redistricting Commission in 2011, only the odd-numbered districts went into effect for the 2012 election cycle.  The new even-numbered districts will go into effect for the 2014 election cycle, and the even-numbered districts previously established by the 2001 redistricting will continue to exist until 2014. These unique circumstances create some areas of overlap between the old and new districts (“accelerated areas”) and some areas without coverage (“deferred areas”).

For the 2013-14 Regular Session of the Legislature, each accelerated area essentially has two Senators representing the area and each deferred area has none. The Senate Committee on Rules will assign a Senator to provide appropriate constituent services (caretaker) to each deferred area.   Accelerated areas will be represented by the both the outgoing and incoming member until 2014. This is a normal consequence of the redistricting process.  

New Senate District 2 Boundaries:

Marin and parts of Sonoma now fall in the deferred areas of Senate District 2 (SD2) and therefore, Senate Rules has selected Sen. Evans to serve as the interim "caretaker" until the 2014 election.  SD2 offices are available now to assist new constituents and will work with staff from Senator Leno’s office as needed to address any concerns.

Parts of SD2 that fall in the accelerated areas of Solano and Napa are still represented by Senator Evans until the 2014 election.
