Good essay. Team McGranery Initiative's map had good numbers across the board and hand the best compactness score. Second best equal population.
The goals of this district map was to give each unique community in Pennsylvania a district while making sure that each district has the same amount of people as closely as possible. I tried to make the districts are regularly shaped as possible to avoid odd, jagged district lines that would lead to confusion or the idea that the map was gerrymandered. Edits were made to adjust for slightly more competitive districts, but this was not the main goal of the map. With this map, I hope to represent each community equally with clear, defined line.
