President Obama decided in his own time on when he wanted to publicly endorse same-sex marriages. The Mayor should be allotted the same respect. Everyone comes to their own decisions on their time, not being pressured by others. Throughout his career, he has supported the LGBT community. We can't forget what he has done along the way to get us here.
When would the Mayor have time to address everything that comes up in the media about him? He still has a job to do, a city to run, and out generating revenue for us, the citizens of this great city. For the 2 years he has been in office, many changes have been made to steer Atlanta in the right direction. We can't forget that. So when he's had enough things in the paper slander his name, I understand why he is now fighting back. A person can only endure so much.
Common Cause is asking City Council to slow down the process and not vote, but for what reason? No valid reason at all. Because they deemed there "might be" foul play, but yet have not came up with any single piece of hard evidence. Why are they still making the news and media outlets, when all they are doing is trying to deter the City from gaining revenue. Which, by the way, we desperately need. Why not work with the Mayor and come to a solution instead of questioning his integrity? What good is Common Cause doing for the City of Atlanta? Besides dividing it.
