As with other maps, this one again places Battle Creek and Calhoun County with rural, southern counties while having more in common with the I-94 and I -69 corridors, including Kalamazoo. Comments had been submitted about this Community of Interest, but they apparently have not been considered when drawing this map and others.

This map has all borders strategically placed to make sure all minorities are in the minority vote. It is carefully done to not include multiple cities with a minority population. It is catered to the republican vote and the non-white vote.

The Lyndon Township split in this map is awkward and will surely cause unnecessary expense and confusion for the voters living in this township.
C. Michelle Balhorn
Please do not split Lyndon Township between 2 CDs. See map 231 for my lengthier comment.
Kristen Brekke
Splitting Lyndon Township between two districts will cause financial harm to our small township. Election costs will rise significantly if this is done. A large portion of our township is state land, so we already have limited resources. Please keep our township in one Congressional District.
Pam Byrnes
I AM PAM BYRNES, SUPERVISOR OF LYNDON TOWNSHIP, AND FORMER STATE REPRESENTATIVE. THE MOST RECENT MAP FOR CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS HAS SPLIT LYNDON TOWNSHIP BETWEEN THE 5TH AND 7TH CD’S. THIS ACTION WILL SEVERELY HAMPER THE EFFECTIVE DELIVERY OF SERVICES TO OUR COMMUNITY OF LESS THAN 3,000 RESIDENTS. OUR 2020 SEV WAS $220 MILLION, 17TH OUT OF 20 TOWNSHIPS IN OUR COUNTY. OVER 50% OF THE LAND IS OWNED BY THE STATE. WE ARE A RURAL, AGRICULTURAL TOWNSHIP WITH AN EMPHASIS ON OUTDOOR RECREATION. IF THE TOWNSHIP WERE TO BE IN TWO CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS, OUR BOARD WOULD HAVE TO DIVERT MORE OF OUR LIMITED RESOURCES TO ADDRESS THE ADDITIONAL COSTS FOR OUR CLERK TO HOLD ELECTIONS EVERY TWO YEARS IN TWO CD’S A MAJOR IMPACT WOULD BE OUR INABILITY TO GET COHESIVE FEDERAL ASSISTANCE, WHETHER IN THE FORM OF GRANTS AND FUNDING SUCH AS ARPA OR PARTICIPATION IN REGIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE EFFORTS. WE ARE A SMALL TOWNSHIP THAT WOULD BE ADVERSELY IMPACTED FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS IN THE DELIVERY OF QUALITY GOVERNMENTAL SERVICES TO OUR CONSTITUENTS. I URGE YOU TO RESTORE LYNDON TOWNSHIP TO THE PREVIOUS MAP OF BEING IN THE 7TH CD IN ITS ENTIRETY.

Please see comment portal submission author Pam Byrnes Don’t Split Lyndon Township for reason

This is the worst map of the 4 chosen maps to move forward. It does not take COI into account. It is the most partisan map of the 4. Maps 219 and 201 gives Asians, Indians and Middle Easterners a bigger voice. Please choose either 219 or 201.
Joshua Davis
Please Keep me with the rest of the Lakeshore ie Holland, Saugatauk Dogoulas, South Haven!

I think my Congressional District is acceptable and fair. Livingston County is kept whole and away from Ann Arbor and 99% of Washtenaw (Lyndon Twp doesn't belong in the district - Waterloo is a better replacement). In addition, this is a fair 50/50 district and winnable for either party. No voters will be ignored. I think drawing District 6 from a 50/50 district to a 55%D district is against partisan fairness taking away a rare competitive district and making it safe democrat. Voters are no longer choosing politicians here. Also, In response to Mr. Coletti, Ann Arbor does not belong with Livingston County. We are very culturally different communities that have even less in common with Ann Arbor than Downriver does. There's already a Livingston-Washtenaw gerrymander experience with the 2011 State Senate district. Nobody (either R or D) likes it. It didn't work. A2 belongs with Canton and Plymouth and not Brighton.

I agree with Mrs. Austin. Tuscola should be within a district with the Thumb since they are a much more rural area compared to Flint, Saginaw, Bay City, and Midland. Adding the rest of Midland County would make sense because many of the people living within the county goes too Midland. While I can't say much from Tuscola's perspective, I believe they would feel better represented by a Thumb district rather than with the Tri-Cites and Midland. Attached would be the proposed idea that I had in mind.

Moving Troy, Rochester Hills, Clawson, Royal Oak, Berkley, Huntington Woods and Ferndale out of District 3 and into District 6 does not preserve county contiguity.
Dominic Coletti
Ann Arbor does not belong with the Downriver communities here. It hasn't for years. Dingell Dems and A2 progressives have different interests. Adding Downriver to other Metro Detroit districts and expanding 7 north into Livingston and NE into Oakland to capture A2 commuters makes sense
Chris
This map (10-10-21 V1 CD RAS) should not be used. First, it does not comply with one of the tenants of the redistricting which is to preserve county contiguity wherever possible. Moving Rochester, Rochester Hills, Troy, Clawson, Berkley, Royal Oak, Huntington Woods, and Ferndale OUT of District 3 (Oakland County) and INTO District 6 (Macomb County) violates that very premise.

10-05-21 v1 CD DW and 10-05-21 v1 CD are the best maps for district 6 and 3. This map does not represent Asians, Indians and Middle Easterners voices. This map makes MI a one party state. Let us make fair maps and guarantee balance of power in MI.

Commissioner Szatela is doubling down on her D-gerrymander which she proposed the other day. 3,6,and 10 can be re-drawn to create 3 competitive districts. 1 that leans D 1 that leans R and one that is even. Instead this map packs R's into District 10. Please also draft an alternative map with the thumb region drawn into the Tri-cities area. It is possible to do. Give the public an actual alternative than simply drawing the thumb into the Detroit area.
Janice M Sovak
Proposed district 7 needs to be split. It isn't fair from a partisan perspective to pack so many Democrat voters into one district. Need to split Ann Arbor at a minimum.
Yousif
This map still dilutes Asians, Indians and Middle Easterners voices. It also make Michigan a one party states. Royal Oak, Ferndale and Clawson belong to District 3. Please vote NO on this map! This 10-05-21 v1 CD map remains the best one for partisan fairness and takes COI into account better for District 3 and 6.
Jeremy Fisher
Please keep Warren in with the rest of Macomb County. This map should be the template: https://michigan.mydistricting.com/legdistricting/comments/plan/218/23 It keeps Warren with Macomb, keeps the sister cities of Warren and Sterling Heights together, and makes sure that Macomb is properly represented.

Flint and the Tri-cities areas are two, very distinct, population centers in our state, with different challenges. Grouping them together like this risks weakening all of their voices.
Robert Bernard Wolfer
I still don't understand the justification for this district.
