At the March 7 board meeting, Chris Watson of the Oxford-based consulting firm Bridge & Watson Inc. addressed the board about preliminary maps and plans for the task of redistricting for the county.

"I think as you can see, this becomes a numbers game," said Chris Watson, partner with Bridge & Watson, Inc., of Oxford, who was hired by the city to redraw the lines.
Watson was speaking of the tweaking done to one of the plans, but he could just as easily been speaking of the entire redistricting process. "This plan maintains the status quo," Watson said.

Chris Watson, of Bridge and Watson, Inc., presented two plans he said he has been working on with Ward 5 Councilman Henry Naylor.
Watson said following the first two public forum meetings, he designed the new proposals with goals of increasing minority representation while avoiding the splitting of neighborhood districts between wards. "I took a stab at achieving something along those lines," Watson said. The first alternate plan would make Ward 1 a majority minority ward by moving lines so they grow into neighboring wards in a clockwise spiral. The result takes Ward 1 from 40.6 percent black to 50.1 percent black. And Watson said if the ward's Southern Miss dormitory population is subtracted, which usually doesn't vote in Hattiesburg, if at all, the black population increases to 52.1 percent. The proposal, though, would increase minority density in Ward 2, from an existing 77.5 percent black to 82.4 percent black. The second alternative proposal Watson presented was only hours old, so attendees were not provided with maps. "We rotate things in kind of a clockwise direction, if you will, a little more," Watson said. He said as per Naylor's request, Ward 1 becomes 53 percent black - mirroring the population density in the city at large. The Rev. Kenneth Fairley also presented a proposal prepared by the Community Political Action Committee. He said recent census data showed Hattiesburg is now 53 percent black and 41 percent white.

But Chris Watson, partner with Bridge & Watson, Inc., of Oxford, said that he anticipated that happening before the city's final version is placed before the public for final comment by the end of the month or early July.
"I know Mr. (Henry) Naylor is looking at his boundaries, and I would expect that will be coming soon," Watson said of Naylor, Ward 5's councilman.
