LA: Redistricting plan has Port Allen city council split

PORT ALLEN- For the last several weeks, the Port Allen City Council has been working on a new redistricting map to go along with the latest data from the census.

At next month’s regular meeting, the council will vote to approve it. The introduction of the new plan passed 3-2 last month. Council members Clerice Lacy, Brandon Brown and Charlene Gordon voted yes. Hugh Riviere and Gary Hubble voted no.

The city is divided into four districts. It hired Cedric Floyd, the President of Data Center, LLC, to analyze the data and help configure the new maps.

“Every city, school board and parish, state rep or state senate has to review their current election district applying the new census,” Floyd said. “In most times, the districts are out of balance, meaning the data is more than 10 percent deviation from the smallest to largest. With that, you must adjust alliances to bring population equality, less than 10 percent deviation.”

Floyd said he presented the Port Allen council with the information at a previous council meeting and advised them on what needed to happen.
