An interesting and insightful analysis of the proposed districts is here: “Some of these proposed districts are a mess”. I must agree with the author. The proposed 6th district has two Congressmen, Ben Cline and Morgan Griffith and the proposed 9th district has none. The proposed 10th district is rural except for eastern Loudoun. That part of Loudoun has much more in common with the proposed 11th district. Read the entire article, you will learn a lot about the proposed districts. Then send your comments to the court.
