The City of Pasadena concluded its redistricting process on December 13, 2021 with the second reading of the ordinance adopting new City Council district boundaries. The City worked closely with Tripepi Smith Business Analyst Allison Torres, who helped brainstorm the City’s outreach strategy, provided progress updates on the implemented outreach methods by creating a robust Outreach Report and supported all outreach efforts.

“Participating in the redistricting process leads to a better understanding of community needs and lays the groundwork for achieving a strong, collective voice. This is a complex process that requires close collaboration between special legal counsel, a demographer and, in our case, two outreach firms,” said Pasadena City Clerk Mark Jomsky. “Thanks to Tripepi Smith’s unique expertise in the redistricting space, the City was able to carry out its aggressive outreach strategy and conclude a successful redistricting process.”

As part of its work, Tripepi Smith researched and outlined the City’s outreach methods in a nearly 50-page document. The City leveraged local organization partnerships to assist in spreading the word of the City’s redistricting process and created physical mailers and digital advertisements which were placed in ethnic media outlets. 

“The City exceeded the requirements of outreach for its redistricting process to ensure that all community members had a chance to be involved,” said Allison. “Tripepi Smith is proud to have been a part of this collaborative effort.”
