Ray Bateman, a former Senate President and the Republican candidate for Governor in 1977, feels he got a raw deal from the Apportionment Commission that recently drew up the new legislative map.

Under the new map, the county is divided into six separate legislative districts – that’s six senators and twelve assembly representatives for one county.
