Andrea Saffle is confronted by Councilwoman Deborah Delgado. Delgado alleged she was “purposefully excluded” from the Hattiesburg Historic Neighborhood Association’s meeting.

Councilwoman Deborah Delgado accused president Andrea Saffle and the neighborhood association she lives in of  being, “exclusionary to me” and, “I was specifically excluded” she said. She wanted the record to reflect this.  Ms. Delgado said she had received a mailer about the meeting, and commented that she has very rarely been able to attend those meetings; but could attend this one.

The association was meeting to discuss neighborhood issues. The CPAC redistricting plan is endorsed by Delgado, the NAACP, and an African-American citizen group. The plan is opposed by many of the neighborhood associations in Ward 4.  Mrs. Saffle commented on Facebook, “No she was not banned. She was invited. But we said she was invited as a neighbor not as a city representative.”

  1. No. 1 – It is Hattiesburg Historic Neighborhood Association, not Hattiesburg Historic Association. Let’s get that straight. No. 2 – I have tried to play to video of Ms. Delgado, Tate and the other speaker and all I get is continuous “buffering,” whatever that is. Finally, Ms. Delgado was not excluded from any meetig or event of HHNA ever held AS A RESIDENT. That particular meeting, as she knows, was a planning session for residents to come together over some issues and to make a plan for a submission to city officials. I would love to see Ms. Delgado participating in HHNA events – Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner for instance – or the Crawfish Jam. I would welcome her as a dues paying member who supports HHNA as one of its residents, but I personally have not seen this happen. Thank you. Patriot – if you are going to post the videos, please make them work.

    • These videos are high defination and with slower internet connections might take some buffering to load the video. If your internet it slow let it buffer while you get a coffee or just wait until it stops buffering. I will work on converting the videos to a lower definition which will speed up load times on slower internet connections, but this might be a week or so.
