KCC closer to altering minority district
Placeholder Image
Kershaw County Council voted 5-2 at its meeting Tuesday in favor of second reading of an ordinance that would redraw District 1 from a majority African-American district to a non-minority district if the ordinance is passed on third reading. Councilman Bobby Gary, who represents District 1, and Council Chairman Gene Wise voted against the proposal. Gary cited a perceived “favoritism” in the plans after noting that of the five proposed maps, only one of the proposals placed his district as the “majority-minority” district.
