Changes to districts, polls leave public uncertain
Candidates and elected officials monopolized a public hearing on Tunica County’s proposed redistricting plan on Monday, May 9. Officials will likely host another hearing for residents of the Tunica Cut-off soon.
Chris Watson, a redistricting consultant with Oxford based Bridge and Watson, presented an overview of the plan. The Board of Supervisors reviewed the plan several weeks ago.
Board of Supervisors attorney Andy Dulaney said the need for redistricting developed following the 2010 census.
“Once we received and analyzed the data, we realized some deviation had occurred,” Dulaney said.
