District 45 is a fair district and Norfolk needs an advocate that will represent all the concerns of this district regardless of political persuasion. A good advocate to deal with constant backups on Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel and how it affects local traffic. We are a hub for shipping and transportation with our port and airport and need a competitive internet portal. We have unique issues of flooding and aging infrastructure with some of our water lines 75 years old or older that need addressing. The Jewel of our city the Azalea Gardens needs representation as do many businesses that have been struggling because of the pandemic. We have not had a mostly Norfolk representative since Thelma Drake and Paula Miller in the old 87th House 10 years ago. This map leans Democrat but is still fair for someone willing to work hard to represent us all.
District 10 is drawn correctly. The entire area between the Route 1 (Richmond Highway) and the Potomac river share the same concerns are are a community of interest. Please keep this block together.
Under this plan, HD 64 would include all of Powhatan and the portion of North Chesterfield that includes Bon Air and Midlothian. Bon Air is a suburban community that borders directly on the City of Richmond and shares a community of interest with the Western portions of Richmond and Henrico, as reflected in the jointly proposed Senate Map. Outside of North Chesterfield, Richmond and the West End of Henrico is where Bon Air residents work, shop, and seek entertainment. Public transit lines connect those areas to Bon Air. Bon Air does not share a community of interest with Powhatan, which, as an exurban County, faces many different issues and concerns than those faced by Bon Air residents. As a Bon Air resident who can walk to the Richmond city line from my house in about 5 minutes, I do not support adding North Chesterfield to Powhatan as an appropriate redistricting solution.

Thank you for keeping the Glen Allen area near Mountain Road with Henrico County as drawn by the Republicans into a new district numbered here as 70. The Democrat maps have removed this area from Henrico County in an obvious, deliberate fashion. The Chickahominy River is used as the County line between Henrico and Hanover. Yet, the Democrat options cross the Chickahominy to include a very small Republican leaning area, disassociating that small portion of Henrico from all community connections it currently shares. The area in question is mainly represented by the Glen Allen Elementary School and Hunton precincts. I live in the Glen Allen Elementary School precinct area and know the Glen Allen and Hunton communities very well. I ran for the House of Delegates as a Republican from this area in 2019 in what is presently drawn as District 72. It is obvious to me that the Democrat drawings are done to reduce the Republican impact of these two voter precincts in the purple area of Western Henrico.

69 district, as all, should be a Virginia district with NO color claimed
The city of Radford is a university community that has more in common with Blacksburg and Montgomery County than with neigboring Pulaski County. Try moving Radford into district 94 and moving rural Craig County into an adjacent district.

We need to call this the the Chesapeake Bay/OV beach interest district. This district representative can help us with the unique issues affecting Ocean View Beach and the Spit. These include beach erosion, water supply, hurricane safety, better internet, traffic backup on Ocean View on the Spit, economic development, Azalea Botanical Gardens, Tourism, Airbnb, Hotels, Airport, Uber, Taxi industry, etc. All of these interests can be addressed with our advocate in the House of Delegates.
Thanks for your comments. In a couple of days, I will look at these things and make a revised map based on the comments.

Your shape for District 96 makes sense if you only have a flat map to look at. But consider that the south edge of Floyd County follows the escarpment of the Blue Ridge. There's a big drop from Floyd into Patrick or Franklin county, and because of that, we in Floyd have a lot more social and commercial connection with Montgomery and Pulaski counties than with Patrick or Franklin.

Or were you thinking that Northeast Roanoke is more like the Hollins neighborhood than it is like the rest of the city?

If you're going to have a piece of the City of Roanoke be in the 91st District, with Salem, wouldn't it make sense to let it be a piece that adjoins Salem?
