The Selma City Council is torn between choosing a district map the community supports or picking one that keeps members from running against each other.
At Monday night’s regular meeting, the council cast votes on a map created by the company it hired, the National Demographics Corporation (or NDC), and a map drawn by a community member. The vote was split because Council Member Jim Avalos abstained.
“I need more time to talk to the public,” Avalos said. “I need more time to analyze these maps.”
