I have no clue who my own congressman is today. I've had about 8 of them in 17 years, 3 in the same district due to 2 deaths and the rest all due to redistricting. Haven't had one actually representing our local interests since Herb Bateman died in 2000. The rest have been from other regions, with the exception of Bobby Scott, who is a local race hustler (and recently accused of sexual assault) that has been in the swamp since before electricity. The courts a couple of years ago thought it would be cute to stick a few conservative middle class neighborhoods in his gerrymandered district that will never flip and I think that is who is representing my interests now, though there are yard signs from other districts in the neighborhood now as well.

RE: NC Map Comparison
It doesn't matter. The current map is unconstitutional. I like where the court has gotten aggressive with the GOP, who seeks to frustrate the courts by stalling. Lets see if they have enough cajones to stick to their ruling.

Correct that it doesn't matter.

If gerrymandering is wrong, it's wrong.

To change it there must be a law put in place defining the districts -- period. No change by either party.

If population moves from one district to another, so be it. Leave it alone and never change it.
