PA Senate District 24 map
The Proposed PA Senate District 24 map "HB 2146" is definitely less competitive than the existing map, which was not competitive, either. In Lower Salford Township, Montgomery County, it doesn't have much in common with the much our northeastern "neighbor (not really!)" areas of Bedminster, Plumsteadville, Dublin, Perkasie and environs that have been added and/or extended farther east to the Delaware River. These areas are not within our local 'community of interest'. We have little interaction with these areas, socially or economically, and do not share many interests in common. We want to see a more competitive, representative map for Senate District 24. Overall, we want fair maps that are competitive and keep our communities of interest together. They should meet the criteria set out by the Redistricting Advisory Council and in our state's Constitution. This proposed Senate District map does not achieve that and needs to be revised to be more competitive and representative. The maps drawn by the Redistricting Advisory Council working with Gov. Wolf as well as, the map drawn and submitted by Pennsylvania Citizens are both much better with regard to being more representative, more competitive and more compact and contiguous. Please adopt one of these two latter maps. Thank you for taking my views and the interests of our community into serious consideration as you finalize this map.
