A Step Backward For Macon

A judge this morning threw out the recall effort against Macon mayor C. Jack Ellis, when a judge ruled that recall supporters failed to provide enough evidence that the mayor had misappropriated money or violated the city code. This is a shame, and a step in the wrong sirection for the city. Since Ellis took office, the city has gone from a $20+ million surplus to a constant struggle to make ends meet. Mayoral incompetence at best, (alledgedly) criminal activity at worst.

The folks at say they will continue the cause, and well they should. This mayor has done nothing for this city except drive it to near solvency. Oh, and make it a laughing stock in the eye of surrounding counties.
