The Hotel plan passed. But there is not enough to override the veto.
The Macon City Council voted moments ago to approve a contract to build a hotel in the parking lot of the Wilson Convention Center and Macon Coliseum. The measure passed by a vote of 9-6. About 120 people showed up at the council’s meeting, most of whom were against the hotel plan.
Earlier today, Rick Hutto explained why he was voting for the plan. You can read it here.
What it boiled down to was that he wants an apartment in London, but because he can’t afford it, he won’t get it. But, he has no problem indebting Macon’s taxpayers for a hotel they cannot afford. Typical Democrat — more responsible with his own money than the taxpayers’ money
Of course, he then voted against the plan. Kudos to him. But why all the hand wringing on your website about how you are voting for the plan if you decide to change at the last minute.
Oh, wait, I get it! You know there are enough votes to pass the plan without you and you desperately want the FOP endorsement, which won’t endorse you if you vote for the plan! Shrewd. Very shrewd. Or is that being a gutless wonder?
