Chamber Advocates,

The Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC) approved draft maps for congressional districts on Oct. 28th. The approved draft has drawn Surprise and Sun Cities into a rural districting running from Colorado to Yuma.

If the current draft is approved our federal representation for the next 10 years will be as part of a rural district that does not share the same needs as the Metro Phoenix Suburb we live and do business with.

We need residents and business owners to take action by commenting with the IRC that Surprise and Sun Cities should be placed in a Maricopa County suburban district that better represents our communities of interest and a compact district.

Below are instructions on how to complete the public comment form and a sample comment you can personalize.

  1. Click here for the public comment form (see an image of the comment form below)
  2. Select “Draft Map” when asked. When asked “What draft map would you like to comment on” answer “Approved CD Draft 7.1.”
  3. Sample Comment: I live and do business in Surprise and the Sun Cities. The current draft map has my community as part of an overwhelming rural district that has little in common with a Phoenix suburb like ours. To fulfill the obligation of a map that maintains communities of interest and a compact district Surprise should be drawn into one of the adjoining suburban districts. District 8 is my recommendation as the communities represented in district 8 are similar in make-up, have crossed over in school association, and business territory.

The Surprise and the Sun Cities should not be part of the YUMA Colorado Congressional District. Our communities interests are with the Valley!
