This plan splits Fairfax County's Woodburn precinct (#717) in half and separates our residents from local FCPS schools, our nearest post office, and our member of Congress who has known our neighborhood for decades.
Alison Ludwig Coops
This plan is also ridiculous, moving my 7th congressional district to northern Virginia.
Theodore Bloechle
Splitting Tyson's Corner in half and separating it from the rest of the Dulles Technology Corridor doesn't make much sense to me. We have much more in common with Reston and McLean than Vienna or Arlington
Jenifer Strozier
I am currently in the 7th Congressional District and do NOT want to be moved. Goochland has much in common with Eastern Henrico, Louisa and the other current counties of the 7th and much less affiliation with the counties running down to the North Carolina line. We would no longer have a representative that takes our vibrant diverse community into account. Keep Goochland in the 7th. Give us a chance to elect someone who represents us.

I strongly urge you to keep Lynchburg City whole, and all parts of the city within ONE Congressional House district because we are one community of interest. The currently proposed maps put two voting precincts in Congressional House District 5, and all of the rest of Lynchburg City in Congressional House District 6. This makes no practical sense and makes administering Federal elections more expensive for the City. It also confuses voters/residents. All of Lynchburg belongs in ONE Congressional House district.
Molly (MaryAlice) McClenon
Put Lynchburg back together, please. Make Lynchburg whole.
Niro Rasanayagam
I DO NOT like this proposed Congressional map which has cracked two precincts in Ward II in the City of Lynchburg into the 5th Congressional district, and put the rest of the City of Lynchburg into the 6th Congressional district. Ward II is a majority-minority area predominantly of African-Americans and was created as such to give this group fair representation in City matters. It makes no sense to break up this community into two Congressional House districts! It will break up this minority group's political clout and lead to voter confusion and disengagement from the democratic process. It will also make it more expensive for the City of Lynchburg to hold Federal elections because two separate ballots would have to be printed: one ballot for two precincts in Ward II, and another ballot for the rest of the City of Lynchburg. This is foolish, impractical and expensive. Please RESTORE the City of Lynchburg as the one community of interest that we are, and keep Lynchburg intact, including all of Ward II with the rest of the City.

SW Richmond suburbs are split off from the rest of the surrounding Richmond area. Seems like an obvious way to dilute the opinions of this region. Chesterfield does not have anything in common with areas on the North Carolina border.
Anthony Ashby Gonzalez
Alexandria/Arlington/Fairfax County/Fairfax city and Falls Church are almost exactly two congressional districts. That's what the commission should do. Instead, this map carves up Prince William into three separate Congressional districts, and divides Fairfax into a third unnecessary split. Under this map, I'd be separated from the northern half of my own community (Woodbridge is split in half) and I'd instead be paired with people in Luray and Winchester 2 hours drive away for no discernible reason. A logical split is Loudoun + Fauquier + northern half of Prince William as one district. Then southern Prince William + Stafford + Fredericksburg + Spotsylvania + Northern Neck as another district. Which is closer to what the current maps have than this permutation which creates a Potomac River-to-Winchester-to-Charlottesville suburbs district for no reason.
Joel Galloway
African American population should be above 40% in district 4. It's possible to create two districts where the African American population is the plurality. This map only has it at 38%, which is rather low.
Joel Galloway
Chesterfield and Henrico belong together. This map splits the Richmond area (Henrico, Chesterfield, and Richmond) 3 ways and does not maintain communities of interest together. This map is unfair partisan wise. I would advise you guys to make a map that is 5D 4R, and 2 competitive districts like the current map (but more compact of course).
Thomas M. DeWeerd
Goochland should be linked with other communities of interests. Most of Western Goochland is similar to Louisa County and Easter Goochland is closely aligned with Henrico. This map shows Goochland linked with districts sharing the North Carolina line. Please do not split up the current 7th Congressional District.
Evan Hanley
Clarke County would be better fit with other communities within the Shenendoah Valley and less with eastern Loudoun/western Fairfax county. Committee should at a very minimum move it within the 7th district and perhaps consider a Shenendoah Valley seat that includes Valley counties up to Winchester.
E. S. McCoy
This map of congressional districts is so much better than what it is replacing. However, I do not like the fact that Lynchburg is split into two congressional districts. Lynchburg is a community of interest and needs to be kept complete in one congressional district. Also, there is that strange little section of the 6th district that protrudes into Roanoke county. Surely it would be better to keep all of Roanoke county together.
Neal Sumerlin
The City of Lynchburg should NOT be split between two Congressional districts. The commission has heard from the beginning that we are a distinct community of interest. Precincts in Ward 2 have been split off in a clear case of racial gerrymandering that is unlikely to survive legal challenge. RESTORE the City of Lynchburg as a single entity, a single community of interest.

Why is James City County cut into 2 districts? The county should not be split!
Carla Heath
Do NOT divide the City of Lynchburg into 2 Congressional districts; this would be VERY confusing for voters as well as candidates and it would not serve the CITY well. It is apparent map makers have intentionally put residents of Ward II which has a sizable black population into District 5 to 'improve' that district's racial profile--a BAD decision for the CITY.
Tina
Goochland has more in common with Henrico than districts at the North Carolina line. Please do not split up the current 7th CD.
Joe Szymanski
Do ya know a thing or two about population deviations my dude, cause you don't got em in 1 or 5 man
Tad Miller
I am absolutely against cracking Charlottesville-Albemarle into the other side of the mountains. Communities of Interests are just as important, if not more important than "compactness". In this case "compactness" is just an excuse to crack out the voting power of Charlottesville-Albemarle. Charlottesville-Albemarle is a "hub" for surrounding communities and to cleave it off into the valley ignores the people that work there, travel there for work, get their medical care there, go to college there, shop there, etc. from surrounding communities like Fluvanna, Louisa, Orange, etc.
