Assemblyman Don Wagner (R-Irvine) made three trips recently to Laguna Beach, a constituency he might soon lose to redistricting.
An independent committee's proposed map of new boundaries for voting districts released Friday shows Laguna as part of a coastal district, stretching from Huntington Beach to Dana Point. Laguna currently is in Wagner's 70th Assembly District, which also includes all or part of Foothill Ranch, Irvine, Aliso Viejo, Newport Beach, Tustin and Tustin Hills.
"The coastal district makes sense, and it is hard to see how to connect Laguna and Irvine, but I would hate to lose Laguna," Wagner said Saturday after a breakfast with residents at Mozambique. "I haven't decided yet what I am going to do."
