    I'm in San Francisco, so I don't see how I can be ghettoized, but here is my reasoning...

    The average district in CA is 690,000 people.  How about we just tweak slightly these counties to maintain their already existing borders insteading of creating whole new ones:

    • San Joaquin (632k residents)
    • San Mateo (697k residents)
    • Kern (713k residents)
    • San Francisco (751k residents)
    • Ventura (791k residents)

    These counties could be split into roughly 2 districts, also with slight tweaking:

    • Sacramento (1.33 mil residents)
    • Alameda (1.46 mil residents)
    • Santa Clara (1.67 mil residents)

    And then group these nearby counties together, whose total pop is +/- 700k:

    • Santa Barbara + San Luis Obispo (656k residents)
    • Marin + Sonoma (712k residents)
    • San Benito + Monterey + Santa Cruz (722k residents)

    And so on...

    (Please, appoint me to the redistricting committee)
