Midland is urban just like Bay City, Saginaw and Flint and is a key part of MidMichigan. Midland is home to 3 Fortune 500 companies, a large cultural center, and a large hospital center. Midland is not rural and should be represented with other urban areas.

Midland is a vital part of the Tri-Cities. It is not a rural community and should not be lumped together with the other rural parts of our county. Midland needs a representative that knows the needs of a city. And the rural parts of Midland County need a representative that has their interest at heart. You have put Midland in with the Tri-Cities in the State Senate map and it needs to stay the same for the US Congressional map.

District 3 can be better drawn to unite the Detroit exurbs in northern and western Oakland County rather than combining them with the thumb in District 10. As someone from Independence Township, I do not have any mutual interests (economic, political, or otherwise) with communities in the thumb, but rather those in Oakland County like Rochester Hills, Novi, Wixom, West Bloomfield, and Pontiac. The population loss in District 10 can be offset by adding Utica, Washington Township, Clinton Township, etc. to 10 and uniting Warren in 6. The new District 9 would unite the Oakland County exurban areas of metro Detroit and would be highly competitive on a partisan level, while still allowing a VRA district to unite Southfield and Detroit. An image of such a proposed district is attached.

Battle Creek is closely intertwined with Kalamazoo and the two cities should be kept together. We share an airport, watershed council, and several economic development initiatives. It would be absurd to split us up.

I live in Norton Shores and work in Muskegon public schools. Our school district is a majority students of color including one third Black and 10% Latinx. Nearly 90% of our students receive free or reduced lunch and 25% don't have internet at home. This is the reality of living in a community faced with historical racism and disinvestment. Our kids face real challenges that students in white, more affluent schools generally do not. It is essential that we be grouped with other diverse communities facing similar challenges so that we will have a representative who is fighting for our kids and making sure we have the funding we need to give them the same opportunities their white peers have. #BlackKidsMatter

I am focused on Midland, placed in proposed District 13 of this proposed map for US Congressional Districts (#179). This map is NOT good, as it ignores completely the long-time association of the Tri-Cities: Midland, Bay City, and Saginaw, that fits best with Flint. The Tri-Cities, known more recently as the Great Lakes Bay Region, forms a clear community of interest that should be maintained in Congressional representation. This map places Midland, a suburban/urban community, with rural communities that stretch all the way across the state to the shore of Lake Michigan. There would be no representation of Midland's common interests with our sister cities--economic, cultural, educational, etc.--with this map. There are other maps that combine Midland with our sister cities of Bay City and Saginaw, with Flint, which more closely align with our common interests. Please do NOT use this map.

Don't put Muskegon Heights in a 90% White district. Black voices deserve to be heard.
Keisha Highland
Please don't put Muskegon with a 90% White and very rural district. We don't belong there and the African American vote will be diluted.

Battle Creek belongs with Kalamazoo

I am a resident of would-be District 13 and it just really doesn't make much sense to me. I think it needs to be kept rural to make sure our interests are represented. While mostly rural, it randomly includes some much more urbanized areas that don't seem to belong like Muskegon, Grand Haven, and Midland. These areas could easily be reallocated to other districts. If other areas need to be added I think Ionia and Barry are a better fit for district 13. Thank you for listening to my comment.

Muskegon belongs in district 4 and Battle Creek belongs in district 9. This will reduce the cracking of voters of color in Western Michigan.
Jennifer Austin
The City of Midland should be with the Tri-Cities and Flint because it is suburban and should be with other urban/suburban areas. It has an industrial economic base like Bay City, Saginaw, and Flint, unlike the rest of Midland County which is agricultural based and should be with other rural/agricultural areas so each group can have proper representation.
