Prior to 1964 several counties had one state senator. Of the rural northern counties one one, Humboldt had a senator. The rest of of the rural counties were grouped in districts of two or three counties per district. One of the single senator counties was Los Angeles. At the time there were 6 million residents in that county. If anything the rural counties had more clout than the most populous county. At no time in the history of the state did the northern counties each have a senator. If anything it gave more representation to where the people live. -- Donald Delis, Sacramento
