2020 Census PL 94.171 Data
It's important to have districts that are representative of the residents, and the re-drawn 27 and 29 districts are reflective of the community.
I've lived in Ann Arbor for more than 34 years and I approve of this districting.
The newly down districts 27 and 29 are more fair and a step in the right direction for our community.
The state is obviously changing demographically, and growing populations do need have appropriate representation. I think districts 27 and 29 indicate forward thinking rather than retropopulation vestiges. Thank you for that consideration.
Sandra R Gregerman
I think this is map makes more sense than the previous congressional map and links communities that have many things in common including common employers etc. Nice work.
Thank you for the update on districts 27 and 29, this looks really great. I appreciate this very reasonable way to give these areas fair and appropriate representation!
27 and 29 look good--I am on 94 between Jackson and Ann Arbor frequently, and these two complementary communites represent a continuum. Thanks
Pamela G. Byrnes Brown
Proposed District 29 reflects a balanced, regional approach
I appreciate the new map of districts 27 & 29. It is important to include different populations in the district, urban and rural, and to make the representatives consider the interests of diverse constituents. Thank you.
Carolyn Hill Stark
This map looks more fair to me. Thank you for addressing the issue of partisan fairness! Partisan fairness is more important than having voters contained into one or two counties.
Michael Penn MacGregor
It appears that overall these are Competitive and Fair Senate districts. I am in the 27th and see connections within its boundaries. An improvement over what we currently have. Well done.
Gregory Allan Peoples
This is much more representative of the population in the district
The way you have redrawn Districts 27 and 29 strikes me as much fairer and more responsive to public comments. Thank you
Lisa Marshall Bashert
Good job with this new map -- fair and representative!
While not perfect (and nothing is) this redistricting is much better than the crazy, gerrymandered mess we have been dealing with for years... Thank you!
The newly drawn 27 and 29 districts are fair and representational. Thank you for these improvements to the map, and thank you for listening.
This is a much fairer map, especially Districts 27 and 29. I appreciate all the work that has been done. Much much has been improved! Now what can we do about civility?
This map is a significant improvement over previous versions. In particular, Districts 27 and 29 as drawn appear to provide a more equitable, fair voting framework. I appreciate the Committee's work in responding to voters' concerns and developing this new map.
Splitting Ann Arbor to make things fair is a great idea. As a resident of Ann Arbor, I heartily approve. Thanks.
Emily Van Ark
I appreciate that this map groups Ypsilanti more with the other “suburbs” of Ann Arbor than with Ann Arbor itself. Ypsi’s concerns often feel overshadowed when we’re grouped with Ann Arbor.
I support the revisions to Districts 27 and 29. This is a fairer, better map.
I support this now. Thanks for listening.
Thomas A McKarns
I like this latest map, it looks fair.
The new districting maps are a fine improvement. Thank you for your hard work, making elections more fair and constituencies more diverse.
I agree with the newly drawn districts 27 and 29. This appears fair. Thank you!
Thanks for all work on the district maps. I like the new map. I think it is good to mix different areas together which will require candidates who appeal to a wider range of constituents.
I like the fact that we are in District 29 together with Jackson. It is a good distribution of different types of voters of different races etc. and the shape of the maps look very appropriate.
27 and 29 appear to be fair districts, I support this
Thank you for this split of District 29 and 27. I am a voter in District 29 and this split makes a lot more sense to me than other versions. It seems to take into account partisan fairness more, which is really important to me.
“Many Thanks “for your work on these redistricted maps. I approve of the newly drawn balanced districts 27 &29.
29 (and 27) appear to be fair districts, given partisan fairness.
This is drastically better than previous versions. There is no perfect way to do this. But this map to me seems as fair as any that could be created. Districts should be contiguous and not crazy shapes. Splitting cities like Ann Arbor is no different than splitting up rural counties. They both likely divide groups of citizens that have similar concerns and needs. But every division will do that to some extent. Again, this map is way better and seems to me much more fair.
I can't imagine how hard this is. Thank you for doing it. This district looks much more aligned with how I (and other Chelsea-ites) live our life. It isn't perfect because that can't be done but it is definitely an improvement. Thank you.
I support the newly drawn districts 27 and 29. Thank you for your hard work.
Gareth A Rogers
A much-improved district 27 as well as 29. Thanks for your consideration.
Good job. Seems to be fairer
Helene S Gidley
I support districts 27 and 29. Thank you for all the great work on the redistricting and drawing fair maps. These are a better representation of our population and voters.
Thank you for all your hard work. This new districting map is a vast improvement from the prior map.
I support these new Districts 27 and 29, and I thank you for your hard work on reaching a fair solution for our citizens. This is a rational way of partition the voters near Jackson and Ann Arbor in SE Michigan.
This looks far better, fairer, and far less partisan than the current district map. Thank you.
Gregg Andrew Hartsuff
These District 27 & 29 maps are a very big improvement and should create an opportunity for either party to win the district. As an independent that is important to me and this will do it!
Thanks to the Commission for improving the partisan fairness of the map by "unpacking" Washtenaw County!
I think having competitive Senate districts is more important than stretching them. This change to 27 and 29 is an improvement in my book.
The district 27/29 maps make sense for me. I live in western Washtenaw County and I spend as much time in Chelsea, Grass Lake and parts farther west as I do in Ann Arbor for shopping, recreation, healthcare providers, hospital (given the option use the Chelsea Hospital rather than Ann Arbor facilities) my critters' veterinarian and boarding, etc., clearly a "community of interest/lifestyle" by this rather nebulous criteria. I think this is a fairly common situation for many of us in western Washtenaw county. Ann Arbor and the University are great, but there are many fine things we enjoy in the Ann Arbor / Jackson corridor... That said, I believe that the Community of Interest criteria is impossible to quantitatively measure and is therefore inappropriate for an essentially data driven activity of drawing district boundaries. The redistricting commission charter is that sense defective and should have limited its mapping making criteria to compliance with the Voting Rights Act and similar statutes and maximizing the number of competitive districts. There is a very broad community of interest that cuts across political affiliation - wanting your vote to be meaningful and count, thereby reinforcing our democratic institutions. Competitive districts support that and can be measured.
I want to thank the Commission for developing this map which reflects much greater partisan fairness by "unpacking" Washtenaw County.
This district reflects the interests of the communities it will serve.
Howard N Hughes
Thank you for the very positive changes to the map for districts 27 and 29. Balance forces us to meet in the middle! That's where we want to be.

Todd L Austin
My thanks to the commission for your work on the new map. I know that this is a substantial volume of work and that the results will never please everyone. Your product is clearly superior to the maps of old. Well done.
The way that Districts 27 and 29 are drawn is a big step in the right direction toward competitive, fair maps.
Robert J Dunn
I want to thank the commission for listening to us. I realize it is challenging job you took on. But the maps you laid out are much fairer over the previous 20 years. Thanks.
Regarding Districts 28 through 31: these are definitely improvements over the past maps offered. As a 30-yr resident of SE Michigan, these new proposed district lines better reflect the communities to be represented; certainly they are far better than the current situation.
I greatly appreciate this maps solution to drawing fair districts that also reflect communities of interest in Districts 29 and 27.
District 27 and 29 look much better than before! Thank you for your work.
I approve of the newly drawn districts 27 and 29, improving the fairness of the constituents represented in these districts.
Miriam Beth Shaw
This new district seems to make sense for my area.
Thank you so much for creating districts 27 and 29! They seem more fair and representative of the two population centers.
Much improved map. Thank you.
Ryan R Dybdahl
These look like more considerate boundaries than I've seen previously. Thanks for your work.
Creating districts for Ypsi and Ann Arbor that are more separate is a sensible solution that allows those two similar, yet different communities to have a fairer, more distinct voice in choosing representatives.
Thank you so much for creating new Districts 27 and 29 in such a way that both districts are now competitive and this will encourage the legislators to listen to ALL their constituents.
Good revisions to Districts 27 and 29. This makes more sense. I appreciate your hard work to make this happen. Thank you!
Thank you for taking the bold step to divide Ann Arbor into two districts. What you have done is to create more competitive districts that use our big demographic bulge to make two less partisan and more representative districts. I expect vigorous debate on the issues.
Susan Beth Miller
I like the division of Ann Arbor into Districts 27 and 29 and appreciate the Commission listening to voter input about partisan fairness. I've been listening to some of the Commission meetings and appreciate all the hard work and long hours and painstaking attention to all the mapping criteria you have to consider.
I believe this map of Districts 27 and 28 is so much better! I really appreciate your efforts to listen, and to make this a more fair map.
Wendy R Zindel
Thank you for the hard work creating a fair map!
Kathleen M Singer
I like the new and improved districts 27 and 29. Thanks for listening to our feedback
Thank you for putting in the work to make sure we have fair and balanced districts. It's so important for everyone's voice to be heard, not just the rich and powerful.
I greatly appreciate all the work put into creating balanced districts. While perhaps a small change area-wise, it's definitely an improvement in reaching a fairer distribution.
Districts 27 and 29 are more fair and appropriate. Thank you
I strongly agree with splitting Ann Arbor from Ypsilanti. It is, at the very least, a step in the right direction toward proportional representation in state government, which we so clearly do not have right now.
Greatly appreciate the thoughtful considerations for both Districts 27 & 29.
this district looks more fair as regarding the communities around Jackson/AA/Ypsilanti, thank you for adjusting
Henry A Buchtel
The new borders of districts 27 and 29 make more sense now, thank you!
Ellen k Halter
I am also relieved you've split Ann Arbor into 2 districts.
Kris A DeAngelo
This seems to be a fair division within/between communities. This makes much more sense than lumping my address with people in towns I don't travel to and with communities I do not frequent.
I Think the way the map is drawn around Districts 27 and 29 is good fair map
Pamela Ann Raymond Ernst
This map is much more fair than the previous version
Please do your best to take any comments that refer to existing COIs or county boundaries with a grain of salt. In this hyper-connected world, existing barriers and boundaries are just that: barriers and boundaries. They cause artificial division and prevent us from moving back to a more bipartisan political environment - the very purpose of this committee and its work. Please take advantage of this opportunity to substantially "shake things up" by merging disparate COIs, townships, and counties into fruitful and diverse groups.
Ryan M Husse
Thank you splitting Ann Arbor. It was necessary to ensure fair elections. Keep up the good work!
This works way better than the previous map.
I think the Ann Arbor - Ypsi link up is good, but as Matthaei Farm development is in Ann Arbor schools etc., this makes less sense for where we live. Superior township is linked to Ypsi and Ann Arbor rather than South Lyon and Novi - very unrelated with different issues.
I support the redistricting for my area based on this iteration.
Approve These are more competitive, less partisan districts. They will assist new opportunity and energy among a wider range of political perspectives and candidates
CHARLES W BILLUPS JR
Love this one! This is my district! It is a broad and fair district with many different types of voters. This will make for fairer elections and more moderate policies. A representative will need to balance the opinions a wide variety of constituents.
Thank you for the newly drawn districts 27 & 29. This improvement reflects a fair distribution in these districts.
Thank you for the new district 27 & 29. This appears much more balanced and certainly more closely matches things like local labor union jurisdiction. Thanks again!
CHARLES W BILLUPS JR
Like this. The goal is to create districts that are not reliably one way or another. It drives better and fairer elections. And less not more partisanship because we must build coalitions that are more moderate to get elected. Splitting A2 is the right thing to do!
I think this map makes a lot of sense, and fair groups together populations.
Barbara K. Petersen
Thank you for working to make a more fair distribution in District 29.
Thank you for the efforts by the redistricting committee to improve fairness in the state of MI; I especially appreciate the new division of 27 and 29 covering AA/Ypsilanti. Great job!
Judith Rose Smutek
This map seems reasonable for my area.
Appreciate splitting Ann Arbor from Ypsilanti
Thank you for all your work. I like how you have drawn the map.
Jeffrey A Alson
I strongly support the newly drawn districts 27 and 29. They yield much more competitive districts, which make the maps more small-d democratic. Current districts in this area are completely non-competitive, and so my vote has never really mattered. Now it will. Please keep districts 27 and 29 as in this proposal.
The present map is unbalanced and the Gerrymandering that results from it hurts us all. We need a more balanced map, leading to a fair representation of all.
Thank you for unpacking Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County. Please continue to do so throughout the state for a more balanced map.
Thomas Anthony Keskitalo
This seems good. Hope it works everywhere in MIchigan.
Allison M Wilcox
This is a good map for the Tri-cities area! Thank you! It's good to keep Midland and its adjacent townships together with Bay City/County and Saginaw. This will make for a competitive district where a candidate from either party has a possibility of winning if they listen to the voters of the district rather than the current gerrymandered district that we have now. Please keep the district drawn this way as you work towards partisan fairness for the entire state.
Thank you for keeping the Tri-Cities together in a senate district. These 3 cities are an obvious community of interest who all have industrial based businesses, a shared tri city airport, several shared media outlets, regional colleges and universities, and together we are considered the Great Lakes Bay Area. Please Continue to work on partisan fairness because the outcomes of the map should reflect the political make-up of the state. This will give the voters a more competitive district and a better representative. This is what the voters wanted when they passed Proposal 2. Please continue to improve the maps until the seat shares match the vote shares of the state (54% D / 47% R) Thank you!!
Map 236: District 1 includes the 3 larger urban areas of Midland, Bay City and Saginaw together in one district. This is VERY good as it reflects that they are communities with shared interests and they will allow the citizens to be properly represented and not be separated out into large rural districts which will dilute or mute the needs and concerns of the more urban and diverse population of the 3 cities. This is a good map for the mid-MI area as it represents the mix and diversity of the citizens within areas that share many of the same economic, educational, environmental, cultural and social issues. Yeah for the People Not the Politicians who choose their representatives.
Thank you for keeping the Tri-Cities together in a senate district. They are a clear COI that share economic, cultural, and educational ties. Please continue to improve the maps until the seat shares match the vote shares of the state (54% D / 47% R)
This is a good map because it keeps Midland with the other urban parts of MidMichigan. Midland is home to 3 Fortune 500 companies, a large cultural center and a large hospital center. Midland is not rural so it should be represented with other urban areas.
Thank you for recognizing Midland as a vital part of the Tri-Cities. Midland needs a representative that knows the needs of a city just as the rural parts of Midland and Bay Counties need a representative that will fight for their needs.
The commission has made efforts to unpack Washtenaw County, this is essential for the maps to reach partisan fairness but they have more to do in other areas.
This clearly unpacks the district by splitting Ann Arbor which is more fair.
This creates a more balanced map - Ann Arbor needs to be divided
Farmington and Farmington Hills are one community that share history, a school district, library system, community center and senior programs, as well as social, sports and cultural activities. We are the very definition of a COI. Keep us together in one district.
Farmington and Farmington Hills are one community that share history, a school district, library system, community center and senior programs, as well as social, sports and cultural activities. We are the very definition of a COI. Keep us together in one district.
Farmington and Farmington Hills are inseparable. One is located within the other and services and schools, libraries and many goals are inseparable. They must not be split.
There's no reason to split Unadilla Township, a one precinct Twp in SW Livingston County. It belongs with either Putnam or Iosco Twp, not Ann Arbor.
This is clearly a Democratic gerrymander. How else do you explain cutting up Ann Arbor to include with - get this - Marshall????? This completely disrespects communities of interest. The commission said they would respect the public's COIs (unless of course for VRA compliance). But this is beyond that, and beyond ridiculous. Thanks for your efforts, commissioners, but pay attention to the constitution please and pay attention to our COIs.
I appreciate the way my district has been drawn, it feels like a fair split of my community and I feel fairly represented in it. I hope that the Detroit area will be reconfigured so that all of my BIPOC friends and neighbors can feel the same about their districts.
Karen Lynne Bolsen
Here again Farmington Hills is split in two. Please keep Farmington Hills together and then Farmington is in the middle of Farmington Hills, so it would be beneficial to keep Farmington and Farmington Hills. together. We share one school district, one library system, and many community events. For elected representation, it makes sense to keep them together.
Mary Ann Margaret Idzikowski
I like Ann Arbor being split from Ypsilanti. This is a fairer configuration.
This is a good proposal for District 28 keeping Lenawee and Monroe counties together, keeping the city of Milan together, and adding Sumpter Twp
I am in favor of the proposed redrawing of Districts 27 & 29. Competitive districts will attract better “middle of the road”candidates. That will in turn create a saner government and more bi-partisan cooperation. Thank you for your service and for hearing my concerns.
I like this Tri-Cities senate district. You have done an excellent job of keeping these three cities together, adding in some of their counties, creating a competitive district in which the candidates running will have to work for our votes before and AFTER the election, corrected a heinous gerrymander from the previous maps, and contributed to the overall political fairness of the entire map. Please keep this district as it is drawn as you move forward.
The Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area has nothing in common with Calhoun County. I appreciate trying to make these districts competitive, but Marshall, Albion, and the rest of SE Calhoun County have more in common with Battle Creek than Ann Arbor and Jackson.
This map is significantly fairer than others because it has effectively unpacked Washtenaw County, giving it better and more responsive representation. My family in Ann Arbor appreciates it.
Elena Ruth Fracassa
This redraw is exactly the opposite of what we are hoping to achieve. Our eastside Detroit neighborhood's have been working together extensively, along with sections of Grosse Pointe Park, to achieve a more accurate representation of our common interests in our district. Your proposed Districts 6 and 7 here destroy all of our hard work and go against our goals.
This map and the Detroit neighborhoods' responses to it demonstrate why Communities of Interest are so much more important than partisanship. LOCAL REPRESENTATION MATTERS AND COMMUNITY-BASED ISSUES MATTER. WE ARE MORE THAN JUST STATISTICS, WE ARE PEOPLE WITH COMMUNITY NEEDS THAT TRANSCEND PARTY BOUNDRIES. The residents of East English Village are rightly outraged at being ignored (despite numerous public comments) and split-up from the Cornerstone and Morningside neighborhoods in this map. The residents of those neighborhoods want to be together in Detroit-based districts. The residents of the Grosse Pointes want to be together along with the northern suburbs and the rest of the Lake St. Clair shoreline. Why not give us all what we want, here? Is the fraction of a percent gained on an "efficiency gap" analysis (without any change to the seats/votes ratio) really worth disenfranchising and eliminating local representation for both the Detroit neighborhoods and the Lake St. Clair COI? No, no it isn't. In fact, breaking-up our respective communities for some partisan statistic is the very definition of gerrymandering.
I'm concerned that this map splits my neighborhood (East English Village) into two districts (6 & 7). Many of my fellow neighbors have expressed our interests in keeping the three neighborhoods on the East side of Detroit in the same district, as we share similar interests. My major concern is that not only the our neighborhood is split into two, the whole city of Detroit appears to be cut and stretched out into areas that don't seem to share interests. Can the commission please respect the municipal and county borders and try to keep distrcits aligned with municipal boundaries.
Keep the whole of Ann Arbor in the same State Senate district. Do not split Ann Arbor!
I certainly support splitting Ann Arbor where many Democratic votes are currently 'wasted' leading to an undemocratic State Senate. It makes sense to divide it North and South so communities along 94 are represented in district 29. I'm less certain about the composition of the southern district 27 and whether it gives enough opportunity to non-white voters to elect a non-white representative. My home location is about equal distant between Ypsilanti and downtown Ann Arbor and we share many of the same community interests. It will be a challenge for this area to engage and share concerns with the residents in Brooklyn, Manchester, and Jerome.
This map covering Ann Arbor in Washtenaw County is much better than previous drafts in that it unpacks Ann Arbor in the name of fairness. Thank you for adding this map.
New Senate District # 16 Map – I have lived in Troy since the early 70s, yet most of my work experience has been in Macomb County. There is NO WAY that Oakland/Macomb are communities with common interests. By including Macomb with Troy, it weighs heavily republican. Troy affiliates with the rest of Oakland County in Oakland Schools, library affiliation, scouts and sports teams but I can’t think of any affiliation with Macomb County. Here’s a funny difference: Troy’s/Oakland County’s E-W streets have names, but change to different names once you cross from Oakland to Macomb. The speed limits even change! Troy needs to be with Oakland County and Sterling Heights needs to be with Macomb County. These communities share interests and political fairness; as currently mapped, they do not. Please put Troy and Rochester Hills back in Oakland County. Thank you.
I am a former mayor of Albion. I agree with other commenters that "this map for state senate districts looks to be the fairest one developed, while still maintaining communities of interest as much as possible." District 29 looks good in terms of partisan fairness as it appears to balance urban and rural voters.
This map for state senate districts looks to be the fairest one developed, while still maintaining communities of interest as much as possible.
Charles D Teeter
It was my understanding the redistricting commission would represent the interests of the people. The proposed State Senate districts for 6 and 7 do not make any sense for residents of the East English Village, Morningside and Cornerstone neighborhoods. Combining us with suburbs to the north does not represent our interests, and in fact this would drastically reduce our effectiveness as neighborhoods. This appears to be more gerrymandering. Please keep our neighborhoods together, we have more in common with other Detroit neighborhoods, Harper Woods and the Grosse Pointes than we do with Mt. Clemens or Sterling Heights.
Janice M Sovak
Appreciate that Ann Arbor has been split, thank you, it's an improvement. However, can't tell if district 27 meets the partisan fairness criteria.
this map does not work for the issues affecting communities along the lake and the efforts of the East English Village, Morningside and Cornerstone communities. Please keep us together so we can continue to help our neighbors.
I am new to looking at these maps. Districts 27 and 29 look good in terms of partisan fairness, which is the most important thing to me. I would be in District 27.
I am shocked to see that the latest plans for state senate completely ignore the input our Detroit neighborhood gave the Commission. The earlier drafts of the State Senate districts kept our neighborhood intact. But this version chops us up, despite our strong identity as a neighborhood, . It would split East English Village (EEV) up into Districts 6 and 7. Yet EEV has been a United neighborhood for decades, with a strong neighborhood association, newsletter, web site, and activities. Many of us submitted maps that showed how EEV should be kept intact, and should also be in the same district with the neighborhoods on both sides, Cornerstone and Morningside. We work together in Restorin' East Warren (https://restorinewarren.com/). to revitalize our shared commercial strip, for example. We are also united in the MECCA development corporation. Neighbors submitted several maps showing how we should be kept together, and also be linked with waterfront communities, where we shop and gather. Please don't throw us under the bus. We need to be in the same district!
Gregory E Spangler
Please keep all five Grosse Pointes together in one district, with Harper Woods, All Five Pointes and Harper Woods belong in District 7, thank you for taking input
I appreciate that the commissioners have apparently heard the requests to unpack Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. However, creating a Senate seat that combines Ypsi with all of the rural townships running all the way to Calhoun County does a great disservice to the people of Ypsi. Stretching that Senate district that far does not make sense, when there are ways to create fair maps that take into account communities of interest and compactness that work just as well to ensure fairness and numerical parity. Maps such as those presented by the AFL-CIO are good examples. This is a good start, but doesn't quite hit the mark.
Cynthia L Zorn
The cities/towns, villages in this district do NOT all have incommon personalities and needs. They are NOT Good match ups. They would be very hard for someone to properly serve and represent. You NEED to fix it closer to what is currently is.
This is finally a fair map that divides Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. This is the best map I have seen that represents the Ann Arbor metro area properly. Those from Ypsilanti will tell you it is a proud city that has gone through a lot, and deserves a map like this one that makes it more central to its district
I'm seeing a lot of praise for splitting Ann Arbor, but it seems to be coming at the cost of a lot of communities of interest in rural areas and is resulting is the bizarre, stretched out districts we were hoping to avoid with this new system.
Splitting Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti is more fair, but these districts still includes portions of other counties that don't make sense. I prefer the option that is a Ypsilanti seat and then a Greater Ann Arbor one. I think o6326 does a better job of handling Jackson and Calhoun. Although I know that municipal boundaries aren't the highest priority, crossing 4 county lines for a single state senate districts along the I-94 corridor seems unnecessary.
This district is nonsensical.
This is a ridiculous partisan gerrymander of 27 and 29 specifically drawn to benefit Democrats.
This is the only of your 3 maps I don't oppose.
How is this not a gerrymander?
Splitting Ann Arbor is a huge step toward partisan fairness, but this could be improved by doing an east/west split instead of a north-south one. This is very possible without throwing off the overall map, and would be in line with dozens of - if not over 100 - public comments from May through this morning. Some good Portal comments about this include c4631, o6062, c5502, p3122, w6195, etc. Thank you!
I respectfully oppose this map. This map needlessly splits Grosse Pointe Park from the other Grosse Pointes and from the Lake St. Clair lakeshore. This map also splits-up the Lake St. Clair Community of Interest (A-9 from the MGGG report) into 3. This will limit our ability to advocate for our lakefront infrastructure issues, address water levels, and stand-up against other communities dumping sewage in our lake during rain events. The reasoning behind splitting-up the lakeshore is unclear here. If it was done for partisan reasons then I have two points to make: (1) COIs are higher in priority than partisan outcomes; and (2) the original District 7 could be more easily modified with minor alterations, rather than by breaking it up completely.
So far, this is the best State Senate Map that meets the community needs, please keep this intact and under consideration for finalization
There's no reason to put part of Livingston County (or Stockbridge) into the 29th. In addition, Unadilla Twp is one precinct and this splits the precinct for no good reason. I also think doublecross of the districts to Jackson and Calhoun is bad for Jackson and Calhoun Counties and takes their voice away giving it to the Big City.
Ann Arbor split is necessary step for partisan fairness
District 16 does not maintain county contiguity. Troy does not belong with Macomb County.
