My name is Jane Williams. I am a resident of the Francis Heights Seniors ApartmentsComplex here in West Denver. I love my city for her cherished views of our Colorado Mountains and many protections for our clean air, water and wildlife preservation. Our access for good health care here in Mercy Housing is wonderful and we continually are in the process of expanding on benefits for Seniors. Here near our beloved Sloan's Lake we wish to be protected by the redistricting process.

Dear Congressional Commission, My name is Margaret Schnipper and I live in the thriving and growing mountain town of Frisco, Colorado. I am writing to emphasize the attributes of my town in regard to its tightly knit community. Whether it be skiing, mountain biking, hiking the trails, road biking, snowshoeing, or boating on Lake Dillon, the natural attractions within Frisco's boundaries are why we live here. They must be prioritized as essential to the character, future wellbeing and growth of Frisco. This "bang for buck," i.e. so much here to take advantage of, is Frisco's pride, and keeps the community close knit. Please prioritize Frisco's boundaries over those of any outside considerations in both the Congressional and Legislative redistricting processes. Thank you for the opportunity to submit this feedback on behalf of my community. If you have any questions regarding my testimony, please contact me. Best regards,

Deborah Rollings

Dear Colorado Independent Redistricting Commissioners, Thank you for your service and dedication to our state. When Colorado voters approved Amendments Y & Z, creating the Independent Commissions, voters took redistricting out of the hands of partisan politicians and established robust public input requirements for the entire redistricting process. Public participation is a critical component to ensuring that the maps you draw are fair, equitable, and prioritize communities of interest. The delays in the release of the 2020 Census data have made your jobs more difficult by requiring the adjustment of multiple deadlines and the use of estimate data to draw preliminary maps. Despite these obstacles, you all have committed to maintaining the robust public input process established in Amendments Y & Z. By committing to hold seven additional public hearings on the staff maps drawn using 2020 Census data, you are ensuring that the public has adequate input on maps drawn with accurate data. Without those hearings you risk compromising the legitimacy of this critical process. Thank you for your commitment to public participation. These maps will define outcomes for communities across Colorado for a decade, the people deserve to have a say in how the lines are drawn. Sincerely,

John Baker
