This story should be followed up with focus on the local angle, specifically Mountain View. In my comments, anyway, I expressed that I'm concerned that Mountain View would be separated from Sunnyvale and Cupertino per current plans. For transportation, land use, and other purposes, there is a tremendous amount of synergy across these cities that would be lost or compromised. From a larger perspective, Mountain View collaborates regularly with these cities along with Palo Alto and Los Altos. Multiple examples of this exist as active transportation and transit options are considered or developed across our region, and how jobs and housing development are best considered. Accordingly, having single points of representation for us is the ideal.

Mountain View has always been separate from Sunnyvale insofar as Congressional Districts. The big local change is that the final maps show Los Altos and Los Altos Hills now being moved into the district of Ro Khanna, leaving the district of Anna Eshoo who represents Mountain View. State Senate and Assembly are differently affected.
