  1. While current minority districts were respected, this class failed to notice the geographically compact and majority Hispanic population that has emerged south of Orlando. District 18, the bay-crossing monstrosity that it is, was preserved; a poor decision there. This map seems to have been drawn entirely by adjusting the borders of the existing districts. This method protects incumbents and therefore violates the Florida State Constitution as amended. I would not grade this effort very generously if I were the professor.

  2. Lisa Walker says:

    District 1, 7, and 8 are not compact. They do not abide by Article 3 Section 21. There is no reason to put parts of District 7 in Putnam, Marion, and Clay counties. Keep it all in Volusia County. And District 20 does not need to come over to Volusia County.
