Reverend Ken Fairley stood before a mostly white audience and gave a heartfelt presentation about the fairness of three minority-majority wards. His plan would redraw ward 4 as a "swing ward", bringing total black population from just at 35% to just over 60%.  Several audience members expressed disapproval of his plan's fracturing of the Oaks Historic District during the citizen's forum portion of the hearing. The full hearing video can be viewed here.
