Thud! New Name for Georgia Street Idea Fails to Get One Republican Vote
Late tonight, the Keep the historic name "Georgia Street" Facebook page reported that a City-County Council resolution urging the Mayor and the Metropolitan Development Commission to keep Georgia Street as the name of...well...Georgia Street passed unanimously. The Indy Star also has this report.
This means that is there bi-partisan support to keep the name, but that Mayor Greg Ballard's dogged determination to rename the three-block street that runs between Conseco Fieldhouse and the Indiana Convention Center has no support among City-County Councillors in his own party.
A Mayor can't get one Council vote from his own party for something he wants badly? Trouble in paradise!
