At its meeting on Tuesday, April 12, the Duarte City Council completed the redistricting process 
and established a new City Council district map by adopting Ordinance No. 909 approving Map 103Revised. 

City Council seats for Districts 1, 4, 5, and 6 will be up for re-election this November, while the election 
in Districts 2, 3, and 7 will occur in November 2024. The new Council District map pairs Mayor 
Margaret Finlay and Mayor Pro Tem Tzeitel Paras-Caracci in District 1. It also pairs Councilmembers 
Jody Schulz and Vinh Truong in District 3. Two of the new Districts - District 2 and District 
4 - have no incumbent Councilmembers. 

The City began the redistricting process in September 2021 and hired National Demographics Corporation 
(NDC) as the demographer. Early in the process, Duarte created a dedicated redistricting 
website, which is a one-stop-shop for all matters Duarte redistricting. It provides education about 
the redistricting process, answers to frequently asked questions, a schedule of upcoming meetings, 
a contact us page, a subscription form to receive districting news, and mapping tools. Residents also 
had the ability to pick up paper map kits from City Hall and the Senior Center to submit hand-drawn 

To gather public input and insights on the district formation process, the City Council held six Public 
Hearings, a Special Meeting, and a Regular Meeting: 

Public Hearing #1 - September 28, 2021: Identify neighborhoods, communities of interest, and secondary 
areas; mapping tools overviewPublic Hearing #2 - January 11, 2022: Identify neighborhoods, communities of interest, and secondary 
areas; mapping tools overviewPublic Hearing #3 - February 8, 2022: First presentation of maps and discussion of election sequence

to adopt the preferred map and its election sequenceRegular Meeting #8 - April 12, 2022: Review of the selected map and second reading of the ordinance 
to adopt the preferred map and its election sequence

The Monrovia City Council proclaimed the week of April 18 as California Mosquito Awareness 
Week. Warm weather allows mosquitoes to breed, bite, and blossom in our neighborhoods. 
This is when fatal diseases like West Nile virus can be transmitted to humans. Keep 
mosquitoes and their diseases out of your home with 3 easy tricks. 

Tip and Toss Stagnant Water Weekly -Did you know that mosquitoes need 7 days in water 
to grow into biting adults? Scan your yard each week for water-capturing containers and tip 
them out! 

Use Repellent - Enjoy your spring festivities without worrying about getting bit outside. There 
are only 4 repellents recommended by the CDC! 

Spark Some Spring Inspiration - Create a healthy community for yourself, and your loved 
ones. Gather your neighbors and join us in Biting mosquitoes Back in your community!

lic comments, in-person, in the CouncilChambers. 
2. Public comments will continue 
to be accepted via email, but they will nolonger be read out loud during the Coun-
cil Meetings. However, the full text will 
be provided to all members of the CityCouncil prior to the meetings.
