I do not at all agree with separating my neighborhood from Reston and Herndon-proper and lumping it with Chantilly, etc. This map fails to reflect the fact that my neighborhood is part and parcel of the silver line corridor.
Sherry Blanton
Herndon is not a large area so there is no reason that it should be split between two districts
Brenda Wichman
I strongly disagree with the proposal to divide the Town of Herndon into different districts. We need to preserve the relative independence of the Town and others like it and that includes by having them represented in one district. If you're working to keep cities and counties together, why are you treating towns differently? Incorporated towns should be kept in the same district.
Erica J Myers
Town of Herndon needs to be one district. I can walk a couple of block to the Herndon Government building or the Community Center, but I'm in a totally different district? That's ridiculous. #OneHerndonOneDistrict
Jeffrey Wichman
The town of Herndon is an independent town! It must be represented as one in the same district.
Scott Tilton
Splitting the town of Herndon into two separate districts really doesn't make any sense to me. I'd like to think that dividing up a town that has its own elected government (and so all the citizens of it clearly have a common interest) was on oversight caused by attempting to get equal populations in each district rather than evaluating which geographic areas might have common interests. If that's not the case, and dividing the Town of Herndon into two different districts was done intentionally, I'd really appreciate to hear the reasoning and logic behind why it was deemed acceptable.

I strongly disagree with dividing the Town of Herndon between Districts 18 and 19. Foremost, this would raise conflicts for the Town’s elected officials for governing two distinct administrative areas. Likewise, it would add confusion and complications for the Town’s local elections. While the overall concept for redrawing State districts lines is commendable and worthy, dividing a small incorporated, self-governing town is not. It just doesn’t make sense. Carefully readjusting Herndon’s 25,000 population between District 18 and 19 is a challenge for the Commission, but this issue is one it must address, re-evaluate and ultimately resolve.

Hope this works this time. Again, reassess and revise

Dear Virginia Redistricting Members. I understand that the Committee is considering splitting Herndon's representation in the House of Delegates between two Districts. I presume that this proposal reflects a misunderstanding that Herndon is a single town with a Mayor and Town Council. As your work continues, please ensure that Herndon continues to be represented in the House of Delegates by one Delegate. Please let me know if you have additional questions. Thank you.
Susan Murray
I disagree with the proposal of dividing the Town of Herndon into two districts. Dividing the Town of Herndon into two districts will definitely cause confusion during voting for town residents and difficult for our Town Council to identify and coordinate district constituent’s issues when the need arises. I urge the Virginia Redistricting Commission to reconsider this proposal and maintain the Town of Herndon in one voting district for the Virginia House of Delegates.
Timothy Kendall
Please leave the Town of Herndon in a single district, instead of dividing it over two. It's difficult to imagine anything other than confusion resulting from the current proposal.
Nancy Myers
The Town of Herndon is an actual town with its own government. It should be included in a single district. This proposal has Herndon divided.
Anand Edward Beh
The City of Falls Church is so oddly divided from its nearby neighborhoods in Fairfax County. As a former resident of the area (less than 1000 ft south of Washington St), I agree with Mr. Savage's comment. The Little City is far better grouped with its neighbors than with distant locations in Arlington.

Dear Members of the Virginia Redistricting Commission. I am a resident of the Town of Herndon. I do not like the way the Herndon precincts have been split between Districts 18 and 19. Anyone who lives in the Town of Herndon should be represented by the same Delegate. These Town of Herndon precincts are contiguous and the people who live in them share many commonalities, such as issues relating to schools, businesses, places of worship, local events, redevelopment, economic development, taxes, roadways, etc. The residents who live in our 4.2 square mile incorporated town should not have to be represented by two different state Delegates. This would create difficulties and cause confusion amongst the townspeople. It would also make it very difficult for our Town of Herndon government to have to coordinate and collaborate with two separate Delegates. Based on your online chart it appears that District 18 (with most of the Town of Herndon precincts) has 85,894 people. While District 19 (that contains a smaller amount of the Town of Herndon) has 86,373 people. Some other of these proposed districts exceed 87,000 people. I hope that you will please reconsider these proposed District lines in order to ensure that the residents of the Town of Herndon are represented by only one Delegate. Thank you.
Lisa Merkel (former mayor of Herndon)
The corporate limits of the Town of Herndon are split between districts 18 and 19. This must be remedied. There are only three precincts in the town of herndon (herndon 1, 2, 3) and to have our town split among 2 delegate would make it very difficult for our local government to coordinate with our GA representative. It also creates confusion among our constituents. For as long as I can recall, the Town of Herndon's 3 precincts have been in the same House of Delegates, State Senate and Congressional districts. Please revise this map to include that. I would welcome the chance to speak with anyone about this issue. Thank you.

The City of Falls Church should be in the same district as the surrounding precincts in Fairfax County (Marshall, Shrevewood, Timber Lane, Graham & Greenway, Fort Buffalo). Residents of these precincts (who have Falls Church mailing addresses) identify more closely with Falls Church than we do with Merrifield or Tysons.

I had proposed incorporating Eastern Vienna into a community of interest with Dunn Loring and Northern Merrifield. That being said, using the Town of Vienna as a boundary between districts 10 and 12 make sense as well.
