The Szetela State Senate map is Not a good map. Combining the rural areas of Jackson County with Urban Ann Arbor is an unfair option for Jackson. The Senate Representation would be lost in Jackson as their time would be spent with the specialized needs and demands from a much larger population in Ann Arbor. Please do not consider this map and do consider the Palm State Senate Map which is a much better Map. Thank you
Deandre M
Prop 2 promised to end drawing lines for political reasons, or gerrymandering. This map makes it even worse by breaking up united communities for blatant political purposes. This map is not TRULY fair to both parties like we were promised.
Michael Novak
District crosses county borders (Wayne and Macomb). As a resident of the Grosse Pointes I have a stronger community connection to Eastpointe and Roseville than the Northern shoreline of Macomb County.
Chris Wingate
Far too much division of communities of interest. Does not follow constitutional guidelines. Palm is best option in this category
Kim K Lindsey
This map splits counties willy nilly and does not represent communities of interest.
Penny K Wingate
I do not like the big division of Hillsdale County, and also do not like Ann Arbor being split and Jackson being put in with half of Ann Arbor. Stay with Palm for State Senate map.
Constance Lippert
This map is less fair when considering political fairness. I would prefer Cherry V2 over this one.
Brian
Jackson is different than Ann Arbor Don''t put together
Suzanne L Zavala
Not sure how or why the Downriver communities were split. District 4 includes Romulus, Van Buren and Sumpter Township? We don't have much in common with them and will make it more difficult for any elected representative to effectively represent the Downriver community.
Zach Rudat
Please keep Clinton County whole
Carrie Hatcher-Kay
This map is okay - less unfair than some maps. Five VRA districts are strengthened in Detroit. However, maps that are less unfair, are still unfair. We want maps that are actually fair.
Mollie Schairer
I live in rural Saline Twp. These districts for Washtenaw County are ridiculous. District 14 extending to west side of Jackson Co.?? I am angry. Where is the respect for communities of interest?
Alan P
Seriously? Breaking up Jackson and Ann Arbor? What community of interest can justify that?! Answer = none. This is ridiculous. Go with PALM. At least that one tries to respect communities of interest better
Cal Morton
I agree with Kristine S Detmers comment posted in Michigan State House Pine V5 map, "... All these maps should have been drawn with a color blind eye and based on population alone! Gerrymandering at its worse!". The data shown in these maps should have only provided the "Total Population" and the "Voting Age Population". All other numbers are injecting race and ethnicity which overlooks the most important fact, "We are ALL Americans"!
Kristine Yeutter
Your constitutional duty is to consider communities of interest. This map divides our rural voices with that of metropolitan areas. We ask for fairness, not divisions with attempts to divide us and give unfair advantage to big cities. Please consider the PALM map, which allows our rural voices to have fair representations.
Nomi Joyrich
This map is less unfair then other maps, but still does not reach partisan fairness. Less unfair still means unfair. But this one comes close
Sue Macrellis
This is not a good map for Jackson County as it get attached to Washtenaw County and 1/2 of the university city of Ann Arbor. There could not be two more dissimilar communities of interest - rural, small manufacturing vs big university city. These communities do not share similar needs or solutions. The Palm State Senate map is a better option.
JEFFREY YEUTTER
This map does not align with the "communities of interest" principle as well as the Palm map. Too much combining of rural and metropolitan areas. Looks like lots of gerrymandering to favor the Democrat Party it appears. I thought the commission was about "people and not politics".
Catherine Upton
I do not like the Szetela State Senate map. It divides Jackson County and combines rural areas of Jackson County with half of the City of Ann Arbor. Ann Arbor has more public service offerings, widely available broadband, and public transportation. Most rural areas, like Waterloo Township, have none of these things. Rural communities have VERY different needs and require different legislative representation. This map would give us no voice in our rural area. Please use the PALM State Senate map. It better represents my community. Thank you.
Richard Michalski
Absolutely the worst plan. It develops the fewest competitive districts compared to all other plans.
Anna Hicks
There is ZERO reason to split Ann Arbor and combine it with Jackson County unless you're trying to do it to unfairly. The Palm map is actually fair to both parties. This does not meet the criteria that you pledged to uphold in creating district lines. This districting has combines communities with no shared community of interest concerns. I can't believe it's even being considered. Please vote for the PALM map. Thank you.
Paul Hauglie
I dislike this map. It does not keep Jackson county whole and needlessly divides it. Jackson county should never be lumped into the same district as Ann Arbor, unless gerrymandering is the goal.
Sarah Abbott
Ann Arbor split is nonsense. No community of interest reason. Only democratic gerrymandering.
Larry Parsons
commissionr szetela even said herself that jackson and ann arbor do not belong together. The only reason to split Ann Arbor is to give democrats an insurmountable edge and guarantee them majority. That's not right, and it does not respect communities of interest or actual partisan fairness that gives both sides a chacne to win majority
Lindsey Brayton
This map is not balanced and unfairly represents urban areas
Cynthia Richardson
I do not like the Szetela State Senate map. It divides Jackson County and combines rural areas of Jackson County with half of the City of Ann Arbor. Ann Arbor has more public service offerings, widely available broadband, and public transportation. Most rural areas, like Waterloo Township, have none of these things. Rural communities have VERY different needs and require different legislative representation. Please use the PALM State Senate map. It better represents my community. Thank you.
Brian Boyer
This proposed map unnecessarily combines Jackson County with other neighboring areas greatly enlarging the population of our current Community of Interest. Please do adopt this map.
Russ Jennings
Do not like
Doug Swartz
The Szetela State Senate map combines rural areas of Jackson County way too much with the urban area of Washtenaw County. I am disappointed to see how unfair these map options are for those of us living here in Jackson County. This map appears to have been designed to drown out our rural Jackson voice as the Senate representatives would be too busy bending to the specialized needs, demands, and ultimately ‘dollars’ of Washtenaw County. Please do not adopt this map. The alternate Palm State Senate is the better choice. Thank you.
Jackie Leslie
This map does not represent Jackson County in a good way
Donald
Ann Arbor has no common interests with Jackson Co.
Jennifer Biddinger
We have no community of interest with Ann Arbor. We do have community interests with communities to the west and south. Please be fair with our Jackson Co. representation!
Barbara Dame
This map does not solve the issue of gerrymandering. The districts are being shifted based on politics rather than focusing first on the communities of interest that each area serves. Please keep Jackson County whole. I was present at the public hearings and heard the citizens of Jackson County provide solid testimony why this area needs to stay intact.
Bernard Allore
City folks don't understand the issues and needs of farming communities. This map lumps urban and rural areas together and this will leave farmers without a voice because there is such a lack of ties to agriculture today. Please keep Jackson County together in one district. I am a senior citizen and I rely on services in my community of Jackson. Thank you.
Bill Richardson
I do not like the Szetela State Senate map. It divides Jackson County, which is mostly rural, and combines it with half of the city of Ann Arbor. Ann Arbor has public utilities, widely available broadband, and public transportation. Most rural areas have none of these things. These different communities have different needs and require different legislative representation. Please adopt instead the “Palm” State Senate map. It does a much better job of satisfying the ‘communities of interest’ objective of this committee. Thank you.
TIMOTHY DEBLAEY
Muskegon county shares no common economic needs and opportunities with counties north! Try again.
Justin Voss
All the proposed State Senate maps are the same. They ignore the common interests between the rural areas in mid-Michigan by splitting Lansing into two districts and assigning rural areas to each one.
Matt Stacey
This makes no sense to split Canton from Plymouth; piling Canton with Westland and Inkster makes no sense. This is just creating a super democrat district and making it not competitive at all
Patrick Maguire
Salem Township should be associated with Lyon Twp and South Lyon, as opposed to Ann Arbor, Dexter and Grass Lake. The majority of Salem Twp is South Lyon Schools. Most residents of the township would consider themselves part of the South Lyon area (especially since most have a South Lyon address). They go to South Lyon/Lyon Township for shopping, dining, church, etc.

Commissioner Kellom's Senate Map is the best one for the Chaldean community in Sterling Heights. Please vote for Commissioner Kellom's Senate map!
