Directs Districts to Focus on Equity and Accessibility

"The transit redistricting process takes place only once every 10 years and requires a great deal of cooperation. I want to thank Oregon's three mass transit districts for their partnership in this process, particularly their work to meet the public engagement requirements and diversity, equity, and inclusion values required by my office."
New districts maps are available on the Secretary of State's website.
