New county district maps debated

Published: Wednesday, March 6, 2013 at 09:38 AM.

Although the residences of Morris of Vanceboro and former District 1 commissioner Jason Jones of Cove City, both present Monday, were both drawn into the same district, Morris said his concern was that the number of times the maps were redrawn showed too much politics creeping into the process.

District NAACP President Alfred Barfield said that all commissioners had agreed on the fourth set of maps and “if the chain is strong, don’t break the links. I’m not talking about color. I looked at the maps and don’t like what I saw. Politics is dirty.”

Morris said, “One map went through my back yard and the map changed three days later to include my house.”
