    Thanks for taking the time and effort to prepare this map. I don’t think the proposal provides the best possible representation for Palm Beach County (PBC).

    I would propose that after the 2010 redistricting process, in accordance with Fair District amendments 5 and 6, PBC, which is currently partly represented by five (5) state senators, should be represented by three (3) senators. I base these suggestions on the following facts:

    Florida 2010 census total population of 18,801,310 divided by 40, the total senate districts, means that each senate district would consist of a population of 470,033, (current district
    population 399,559). PBC 2010 census total population of 1,320,134, divided by 470,033 should mean that PBC would have 2.81 Senators. If Deerfield Beach, Broward County,
    population were included, PBC would have three state senators.

    I would suggest that redistricted senate district boundaries are drawn much along the lines of current boundaries for districts 25, 29, and 30, and incorporate the PBC areas
    currently represented by districts 27 and 28.

    Your time and attention is much appreciated.

  2. Your plan looks very similar to mine. We both created a new Hispanic district in Orlando. There are two major differences- First is that you preserved the long, skinny shape of 29 while I cut off its Palm Beach county appendage and expanded it west in central Broward county. Your 29 has a higher percentage of blacks, but in mine they are still a majority. The second is that you preserved the shape of district 1. I was able to keep district 1 in Duval and Clay counties only while having its black population greater than that of your proposal. All in all you did a good job, this is a good plan.

  3. One more comment- your districts unnecessarily cross Tampa Bay. As a resident of the area that would be upsetting to me.
