  3. The map shown is the Board of Supervisors districts, there are 5 of those. However there are 10 Justice of the Peace districts. It is pretty easy to conclude that the map for the Voard of Supervisors is NOT the same as the JP districts. Can anyone find a map of the JP districts?

  4. Just curious why you would show a Board of Supervisors district map & not a Justice of the Peace precinct map. That is not a map of Justice of the Peace precinct 2.
