This map is better than most for Oakland County. Swap South Lyon and Plymouth and it works better. Keep Rochester Hills, Rochester and Oakland Township with more of Oakland County. That is their community of interest
Charles Hodgman
Kalamazoo is not represented well in this primarily rural map. Kalamazoo is better represented in the Apple map with Grand Rapids.
Candy DeHaan
Jamestown Charter Township is a mostly rural community, with barely 20% of the Township being serviced by Public Water and Sewer and about 2/3 of the Township is zoned Agricultural. As a resident, I am pleased to be a part of the interconnected community known as Ottawa County, a unique Community of Interest whose smaller cities and townships share economic and agricultural ties. Jamestown Charter Township should not be lumped in with Kent Count or the Grand Rapids area but remain with Ottawa County. Keep Jamestown Township as part of the Ottawa County Community when redistricting.

Please remove this cut out (Lyndon Township) and keep the Chelsea community and Washtenaw Co together. I see this proposed on many maps and strongly object. Please keep the county boundaries lines intact whenever possible.
Christopher McMillan
This map looks like a Gerrymander as far as Midland and the surrounding area goes. Lumping in Gladwin to the north and Saginaw to the south while maintaining a safe seat for Moolenaar by tying industrial Midland with everything rural to the east? Not good.
Margaret Schankler
Please move the prison population to an overpopulated district to address prison gerrymandering.

District 8 looks like it was drawn by the sitting Congressman Tim Walberg. Its totally safe and will subject the district to more of the same representation we have now which ignores 1/2 his constituents. I worry the current Congressman who will feel embolden to do whatever he wants without any voter controls.
Robert Dragan
This map has its good point in that it keeps Kent CO whole. With so many rural areas included with Grand Rapids and its close cities it may still be gerrymandered in favor of Republicans.
Cassandra M Foley
This is not a fair map for District 13. What does Midland have in common with Ludington? Please go back to the maps that keep the Tri-Cities and Flint in one district. Please unite these communities of interest in a competitive district that will result in better representation for Mid-Michigan.
Yousif
I drafted a district maps that represents the Chaldean community. We stretch from Macomb all the way to the outskirts of Wixom! We are around 160,000 people in Metro detroit area alone and growing! Please use either district map: https://districtr.org/plan/68270 or https://districtr.org/plan/68275. Please do not dilute our Chaldean voices! We have lived and contributed to MI for over 100 years! Please give a voice! We are a community of interest! Thank you commissioners!
Brendon Mark Baranek
I am not a fan of this map, particularly District 11. A Tri-Cities including Flint map makes a lot more sense than including Gladwin in with Bay City, Saginaw and Flint. Historically the 4 counties of Bay City-Saginaw-Midland-Flint have been a logical COI in Mid-Michigan. I urge you to do what you can to keep that existing COI whole.
Anne Wallin
Please keep the towns of Midland/Saginaw/Bay City in the same district. Many people live in one city and work in a different one. As municipalities with a industrial bases, we have many similar interests from public policy. There is more logic to urban versus rural interests when creating a COI. I also urge you to keep districts competitive from a political party perspective if feasible. Thank you for your work.
Cindy Weir
Please.... NOT THIS MAP..... This map looks like a gerrymander to save Rep. John Moolenaar's seat. It is unconstitutional to intentionally draw districts that benefit a candidate. Including Gladwin in a district with Saginaw, Bay City and Flint makes no sense. This makes no sense. Please go back to a Tri-Cities and Flint congressional district. This allows you to keep most of those 4 counties whole and have a clear Mid-Michigan COI. Thank you!
JESSIE WOOD
This map looks like a gerrymander to save Rep. John Moolenaar's seat. It is unconstitutional to intentionally draw districts that benefit a candidate. You even put Gladwin in a district with Saginaw, Bay City and Flint. This makes no sense. Please go back to a Tri-Cities and Flint congressional district. This allows you to keep most of those 4 counties whole and have a clear Mid-Michigan COI.
Drew Anthony Beckman
This map is moving closer to partisan fairness, but still does not reach an acceptable level of fairness. The Republican party is still receiving a disproportional advantage under these maps. From a COI perspective, I like that the city of Sterling Heights is maintained whole and is grouped with Troy. An improvement would be to include the city of Warren with District 6 so that they can remain in a Macomb County District.
Max Hornick
Kalamazoo should not be in a rural district.
Douglas Floto
District 3 needs work. The fart north prongs help dilute the suburban nature of the southern part of the map, bringing a rural republican aspect to the district. It's not cohesive nor representative of the moderate Democrats and Independents who live here.
Carol Heron
Regarding District 11, this map 238 is a bad map. It attempts to keep the shape of the commission’s Collaborative Congressional District 11 but fools no one. Do not split the Tri Cities just so that you can dilute their voice with rural concerns. Please do not adopt this map.
Suzanne Kinne
Another map that cuts South Oakland County off from its neighboring communities in order to include the further reaches of Macomb county. It doesn't make sense, and it feels very much like gerrymandering to me.
Christine Kosmowski
This District 8 map Battle Creek and Calhoun County with southern, rural counties when they have more in common with Kalamazoo and counties to the north along the I-94 and I-69 corridors. This map is similar in configuration to others and is also very disappointing. Comments submitted previously about the I-94 Community of Interest appears to have been ignored. Please revise this map.
Allison M Wilcox
PUtting Midland county in a district that goes all the way across the state to Lake Michigan makes no sense. Connect us to the communities nearest to us, like Bay City and Saginaw. That's where our community of interest is located.
Marie Johansen
Map 238 District 13 and District 11. This map has draw districts to reflect very large rural areas while also including the more urban cities and towns within them. The effect is to dilute the voices of those urban and minority citizens. A key example is including Midland into District 13, separating it from District 11 which houses Saginaw, Bay City and Flint. Segregating Midland from the other 3 mid-sized industrial/urban centers defeats the purpose of keeping communities with similar features together, esp. when they are geographically close together. Midland must not be separated from the Tri-Cities and Flint in any District map. These areas must have the representation they deserve by having their voices heard. What is the intent of separating Midland? Are we making these maps to reflect the mix of the citizens, or to keep politicians in a job? Voters NOT Politicians (bid for a job) must be reflected in these maps.
Angie Kelleher
This map looks like a gerrymander to save Rep. John Moolenaar's seat. It is unconstitutional to intentionally draw districts that benefit a candidate. You even put Gladwin in a district with Saginaw, Bay City and Flint. This makes no sense. Please go back to a Tri-Cities and Flint congressional district. This allows you to keep most of those 4 counties whole and have a clear Mid-Michigan COI.
Michelle Mormul
Warren, Centerline, and Madison Heights should not be included with Wayne County!!! This is Gerrymandering. They should be included with Oakland and Macomb Counties.
Jim Morrissey
This map is drawn to dampen the minority voice of Flint and Saginaw. And it completely silences the voice of Midland. Midland is an urban community and a vital part of the Tri-Cities and the MidMichigan economic cooridor.
Molly Morrissey
This is a ridiculous map. This must be to try and save John Moolenaar's seat. Midland is the only major city in this very rural district. It's absurd to have Gladwin county in with Bay City, Saginaw and Flint but not Midland. What the heck???
Craig Austin
Thanks for the hard work you are doing but this map is not in the interests of the region. This does not meet the clear goal to have communities of interest together.
Bill and Karen Gibson
Regarding communities of interest- Gov Whitmer's plan restarting the state during covid, divided into 8? regions. Areas were chosen based on where citizens traveled, lived and worked. To me that would be a community of interest. Midland county, Saginaw, Bay, and Gladwin and others to the north were part of a region. The Tittabawassee River Water shed should also be considered due to shared economic impact during recovery. This will be a process for years. Yes, Midland, Bay City and Saginaw are the major cities of the Great Lakes Bay Region. Also in common are areas of major agriculture and rural areas that are connected to these municipalities. I do not see a significant connection to Genessee county and Fenton.
Scott Weston Rose
There is no reason to overlap 3 counties with 1 district here. Please minimize county cross overs. Also, this will keep the African American representation from being lost. Here is my proposal: https://districtr.org/plan/47883
Joel Rutherford
My comment is to dislike this map. I don't know why the one above says like??? What's going on here?
Garian Cook
This current plan for 6th District that will be replacing the current 9th district is egregious. On what planet does Sterling Heights, Clinton Township and St Clair Shores belong in a district with Royal Oak, Ferndale, Berkely and Huntington Woods etc. especially from a communities of interest standpoint. This 6th Congressional district plan is for the most part just the current 9th district gerrymander with Warren excluded. Commissioner Clark needs to do a better job of maintaining the Macomb County communities of interest, while keeping the splitting of Macomb County to a minimum.
Joe Fresard
(c) Districts shall reflect the state's diverse population and communities of interest. Communities of interest may include, but shall not be limited to, populations that share cultural or historical characteristics or economic interests. Communities of interest do not include relationships with political parties, incumbents, or political candidates. (f) Districts shall reflect consideration of county, city, and township boundaries. (g) Districts shall be reasonably compact. This fails on these counts
Linda Pell
This is clearly a Republican gerrymander. Battle Creek has many, many synergies along the I-94 Corridor and does not fit in a CD with the southern tier counties.
Jennifer Austin
Are you kidding me? I have been very civil on all my comments, but this doesn't even make sense. You ignored the clear COI of the Tri-Cities and Flint that most of the commissioners have included in their maps just so you could place Midland in this central district. This map seems to be drawn directly to support John Moolenaar. You know drawing a map directly in favor of a politician is illegal. You even put most of Gladwin in a district with Bay, Saginaw and Flint?! That makes absolutely no sense. Go back to the versions of the map that put the Tri-Cities and Flint together in a congressional district. This is one is awful.
Lisa
Rochester in a district with Eastpointe? Come on. Please explain that COI. This is ridiculous. These districts DO NOT represent COIs and are unfair to the communities involved.
