Board favors community voter plan
County redistricting suddenly resurfaced on the Sept. 30 Board of Supervisors agenda, after being off the radar since a public hearing in June.
Redistricting consultant Ellis Turnage, a Cleveland attorney who presented a plan early in the summer, pulled the rabbit out of the hat during his report this week. At the June 28 hearing, the Tunica County Redistricting Committee also submitted a plan, labeled 5A.
“The Board has seen four or five plans,” Turnage reported. “All these plans follow the rules of law: about the same number of people in each district; contiguous districts; the one person-one vote rule: and Section 2.”
