Rosalind Cox
This map strengthens the voting rights act districts which many Detroiters asked for. However, it is still too partisan and we need fair maps please.
Patricia Banner
After looking at all of the maps, NONE of them represent where we work, spend our time or money. This is extremely disappointing. The Rose township area of Oakland county should be in the same district as Fenton or Holly.
Peter Bane
This map responds to comments of Detroiters who wanted strengthened Voting Rights Act districts, but the overall map is too partisan and favors the minority party. Less unfair is still not good enough. We need fair maps. Keep working. There are better choices than this one.
Carolyn M Mayne
Keep Midland County whole
Tim Brewer
Having lived in Kent county area for many years i believe linking it with areas further to the south does not make sense. Palm is a better option
Kathy A Swartz
Szetela is a bad option, Palm is the better option. This map does not keep communities of interest properly together for fair representation.
Marie Colombo
This map creates voting rights districts, and meets the requests of Detroiters. But overall, it is not as fair as others.
M Dame
I am very disappointed in the State Senate maps presented. I have to agree with SOOO many people who stated the maps have been gerrymandered to falsely promote “political fairness” while at the same time dismissing “communities of interest”. This experiment in “redistricting” is proving to be a farce. I have to agree with the masses who believe your prioritizing process has been unconstitutional and I hope these maps are challenged in court.
Scott William Miller
Keep Midland County whole.
David Johnson
Keep Midland and Gladwin counties together and whole.
Brenda Guest
The Szetela Senate map is bad for taking the City of Midland away from Midland County. Midland doesn’t belong with Bay City or Saginaw. Midland communities need to stay together.
Anne Van Hulle
This is not a good map. The slicing of Midland county is not in their best interest and will not meet their needs.
Rich & Brenda Keenan
USE COMMON SENSE! Representation voices the community’s needs and isn’t about political correctness or political advantage. This IS NOT a map that joins like communities. Keep Midland City and Midland County together.
Gaye Terwillegar
Do not slice out the city of Midland for your Gerrymandering purposes- not acceptable.
Chris Moultrup
The City of Midland needs to remain with the County of Midland. We are one community of interest.
Nomi Joyrich
This map does a good job creating VRA's, especially in Detroit. But this map does not have partisan fairness.
E Manley
I do not support this map
Brad Blasy
Bad idea.
MARGARET M GILLEAN
Midland Republicans do NOT use SPAM we do NOT accept this map
Sean M McCormick
Once again, so many Midland Republicans are spamming the comments section to ensure watershed connections when in reality the Midland area, and the state senate under this map, will be unfairly biased towards Republicans. As a dissenting voice of these people, I hope Midland and many other areas are part of competitive districts that ensure partisan fairness and that the commission ultimately values this over watershed connections and county lines. While those are important, we need to ensure that the lines overall represent the people who vote.
Mike Scott
No to this map. We need a map that keeps Midland County whole.
Justin Scott
Keep Midland County whole. Stop this partisan gerrymandering.
Jane Scott
This does not work for the citizens of Midland. We need our city to stay whole with our county and Gladwin.
Larry Schuelke
No Please. Midland wouldn't get any representation with the bigger Bay City and Saginaw and the cities are so different with different issues. Don't gerrymander us together.
Cathy Lunsford
This map cuts portion of Midland County from the whole. Midland County needs to be kept whole and with the County of Gladwin and other counties to the east due to shared interests.
Mary Ann Allore
This map is terrible. It does not keep Jackson County together as a community of interest despite the comments made by so many citizens at the public hearings to do so. It also connects us with the urban city of Ann Arbor that does not share common communities with rural Jackson County. Please keep to the promises made to us back in 2018 – follow the Communities of Interest submitted by the people of Michigan.
Kelly Schrubba
As a Wixom resident, we have more in common with those east of us than to the west, and our votes will be muddled.
Kelly Schrubba
Please reject this area of the map as unlikely to reflect the voters.
Rebecca S Smith
Need to keep Midland with counties to the west and keep it WHOLE.
Joseph Lunsford
This map fractures Midland County and makes the least sense. Almost 55 years in Midland County and I would like to continue to share interests with friends and family to the north and west.
James Cameron Hart
This map seems to really promote gerrymandering. It unnecessarily splits up communities for the sake of partisan gain. While no map is going to be perfect this map really seems to push the interest of select groups rather than communities of interest. The point of this commission is to do its best to draw nonpartisan, and fair maps, this map does not do that.
Connie
This map has unfair partisan scores and should not be used. The Constitution requires that partisan fairness be prioritized.
Jennifer Majorana
Please listen to the many voices on this portal begging for fair representation! Midland county should not be sliced and diced up. Families in the city of Midland and Midland/Gladwin counties have so much more in common with education, the watershed, law enforcement, etc., than the city of Midland does with Saginaw or Bay City. Midlanders are asking you for fair representation, please. Thank you for your hard work and we are trusting you to do the right thing.
J Michael Dizer
Dividing Midland County and putting the City of Midland with Saginaw doesn't make sense.
Christa Krohn
Please do not divide Midland county.
Karen Lynn lindholm
No to the maps
Jon Lynch
Dividing Midland County makes no sense
Mary Lou McEwan
This state senate map slices up Midland County. Keep Midland City connected to Midland County and Gladwin County. No Gerrymandering.
Francis A McEwan
This state senate map slices up Midland County. Keep Midland City connected to Midland County and Gladwin County. No Gerrymandering
Aaron Majorana
This is a bad map because it combines Midland with Bay City, and Saginaw. As someone who lives in Midland, travels to Saginaw for work and visits Bay City often, there is absolutely nothing in common with these communities and Midland. Midland County deserves a unified voice.
MARCIA BLACKSON
Keep Midland City with it's county and North and Western Neighbors. This makes no sense as you don't need the added population to the already really big cities.
David E Kepler
NO this may does not map well for our communities
Daniel Kozakiewicz
This map is not fair.
Cindy Kallgren
I live in Midland County. We will not have Representation if Drowned out by Bay City and Saginaw. Please keep these larger Counties Separate
Amanda Oster
Keep Midland County whole!
Carole J Chi
This map does not achieve what it is supposed to Constitutionally---partisan fairness. So let's go back and choose the LINDEN Senate Map, or the Cherry Senate Map is a close second. But I prefer the LINDEN. thank you!
Drew Wagener
Nope! Nothing short of insanity is represented in the Szetela map!
Connie
As required by the Constitution, partisan fairness must be prioritized. This map is unfair. Cherry and Linden have better partisan scores.
Daniel Schifko
This map does not represent communities of interest.
Rebecca Mayer
I do not like this map as it divides Jackson County and combines it with half of the City of Ann Arbor.
Eric Kyle Schichl
I dislike this map despite being created by someone of Hungarian decent
Carly Moran
Much like aforementioned maps, Szetela needlessly splits rural Hillsdale County, and includes Jackson with the very different suburbs of Ann Arbor. Palm appears to be the best for Southern Michigan.
Melitz Mike
Dislike
david Berry
I do not like the SZETELA map because it does not keep Lenawee County whole. Tecumseh needs a voice that reflects the "rural" area it is set in, not the "urban" Ann Arbor sound. Please don't adopt this map. The PALM map is much better. Thank you.
Stephen Stackable
Again opposed to splitting midland county and Midland city into different districts, and separating city from counties to the north and west which have similar interests.
Emily Jernberg
Either Cherry (v2) or Linden would be fairer.
Elizabeth Bonner
I prefer Palm
Jim Lax
I disapprove of this map. Kent County is fragmented in this map, and one district connects southern Kent County to Benton Harbor/St. Joseph for no particular reason. The Commission has yet to come up with an acceptable State Senate map for Kent County.
Clifford Johnson
Both Cherry and Linden would be better balanced than this one.
Margaret Weber
Maps that are less unfair, are still unfair. Cherry and Linden maps are better than this.
Connie
Partisan fairness must be prioritized. This map is unfair. Linden has better partisan fairness scores.
Anne Wallin
I appreciate that this map keeps the cities of Midland, Bay City and Saginaw together. That is a logical group of communities with similar interests. However this map is not any better than the Linden map for partisan fairness. While this map is acceptable from my perspective, Linden is a better choice.
Lisa P LaGrou
I dislike this map. This is not a good redistricting plan; it does not promote partisan fairness.
Jennifer Austin
This is a good district for the Tri-Cities and I like it, but the partisan fairness scores don't seem any better than Linden. Linden is my first choice of senate maps, so unless this does something for a particular community of interest that I'm unaware of I, would prefer Linden.
David J Houck
I do not support this map. I do not feel that I would be represented fairly, being grouped with Ann Arbor. Two different worlds.
Patrick Richardson
I do not like the Szetela State Senate map. It divides Jackson County and combines rural areas of Jackson county, which is rural in character, with densely populated areas in Washtenaw County, including half the city of Ann Arbor . Ann Arbor has public utilities, widely available broadband, and public transportation. Most rural areas don’t have these public services (and don’t need them). These different communities have different needs and require different legislative representation. Please adopt instead the “Palm” State Senate map. It keeps Jackson County whole and combines it with more rural sections of adjoining Counties. Thank you.
Karen Weideman
Maps that are less unfair, are still unfair. We want maps that are actually fair.
Claire Ott
Better in Detroit. Less unfair
Michael Cameron
I do not like the Szetela State Senate map because it combines rural areas with the city of Ann Arbor. Ann Arbor has vastly different resources and services than rural areas do and therefore need different representation.
Erin MacGregor
Whatever happened to keeping the districts as square as possible? Isn't that supposed to be a main goal when redistricting occurs? Why is it assumed that people have the same interests/opinions just because they are the same race or ethnicity? That's an offensive assumption. This map is a terrible mess.
Sharon Houck
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.
Yousif
Commissioner Kellom's Senate Map is the best one for the Chaldean community in Sterling Heights. Please vote for Commissioner Kellom's Senate map!
