  1. Staff received an email from Daniel Rutenberg (dandjrutenberg@gmail.com) about this plan that stated the following:

    Jack Wolff, knowing that I have been an interested observer of the Florida political scene for my fifty-five adult years in Florida, has asked me to comment on his proposed east Hillsborough County district for the United States House of Representatives. Although I live in an adjacent district, I care intensely about the fairness of Congressional redistricting throughout the United States, especially in Florida. I think that his plan for the east Hillsborough County district is unusually successful in meeting the diverse expectations of both federal and state standards.

    It deviates from the ideal population standard by about 1/16 of 1%, a remarkable achievement. The proposed district is admirably compact, approaching a square. Both precise municipal boundaries and the approximate limits of unincorporated communities, e.g. Brandon, are scrupulously respected. With almost half of its population being black or Hispanic, it is a model of diversity.

    It is more than a vast improvement over its counterpart from the 2000 census. I realize that in the final analysis each Congressional district can only be drawn in the context of contiguous districts, but Mr. Wolff’s proposal is so good that I hope it can be precisely realized.

    Thank you for giving me this opportunity to comment. With best wishes for legislative success with a difficult assignment, I am

    Sincerely,
    Daniel Rutenberg
