Like many Marylanders, I am frankly embarrassed by the strange congressional districts just approved by the electorate. I humbly suggest that future redistricting efforts attempt to make more compact districts in which the representatives can better attend to local issues.
For example, my home in rural western
While I'm sure this redistricting has tepidly met approval from federal judges, the districts are still embarrassing. Since I believe politics should be as local as possible, I recommend that future congressional districts be drawn only from adjacent postal zip codes, none of which are shared with any other district.
Since the average district should have approximately 600,000 people and the more populated zip codes in Maryland have up to 67,000 people, the typical district will contain 15 or more zip codes.
Please consider me for any future non-partisan redistricting committees.
