Drawing city district lines based on zip codes is a naive way of 'representing' the people who live in those areas. For instance, the Asian Pacific American population makes up nearly 16% of the total population in the City of San Diego (and also the fastest growing population in the state and country), yet the APAs have no representation in City governance. The APA group is clearly a 'community of interest' that gets ignored. It really is a disservice to the entire San Diego community to not recognize the contributions of ALL ethnicities and other communities of interest.
