    Our new districts were an improvement mainly because what came before was so atrocious. I should have mentioned that noplace in the district right next to me is as far away as the part of my district where "my" legislator lives and where his attention is centered. I also should mention that he isn't a bad guy as far as I can tell and I don't disagree with most of his political stances - he just is not in contact with my neighborhood, and has no motivation to become in contact with us. Compact districts mean that there is a greater likelihood with the citizen knowing the legislator and vice versa.
