Redistricting proposal draws critics
ST. FRANCISVILLE, La. - A proposed redistricting plan for West Feliciana Parish drew strong opposition from residents when it was presented this past week.
Farmer Plater Gooden tells The Advocate he would no longer be permitted to raise hogs if the changes are adopted.
Shane Landry, who also lives in rural West Feliciana, said the proposed redistricting should work for everybody.
West Feliciana residents voted in November in favor of a council-president form of government, made up of four district council members, one at-large council member and a parish president. A seven-member police jury currently governs the parish.
