Population and Geography based on 2010 census
The maps are difficult to read - there is unnecessary noise for this evaluation (e.g. preserve boundaries, topography) and city borders stand out more than the boundaries of the proposed wards in all 3 scenarios. That noted, I strongly dislike C (agree with prior 'gerrymandering' comment) and prefer B over A. Ward assignments by city boundaries to the maximum extent possible makes more sense than traffic corridors and will be easier for the public to understand.
I very much dislike C; it makes little sense, and looks too much like 'gerrymandering'. Either A or B would be OK, but I prefer B ("city centric"), as - by tying wards more to towns/cities - it makes it clearer to people which ward they belong to.
I like both A and B, perhaps with a slight preference for A, but B is entirely reasonable as well. It seems that the main difference is in Mountain View.
