Michael Morrison, owner of Inserection on Cheshire Bridge Road as well as several other sex shops and porn stores, said today he will not be running against Alex Wan for Atlanta City Council.
Two weeks ago, Morrison said he was thinking of running against Alex Wan for the District 6 seat after Wan pushed for legislation that would have ousted adult businesses on Cheshire Bridge Road by 2018.
In a 3-2 vote, with one abstention, the Atlanta Zoning Committee voted to approve proposed legislation that would oust adult businesses along Cheshire Bridge Road by 2018.
Voting in favor were Keisha Lance Bottoms, chair of the committee; Alex Wan, co-chair and sponsor of the legislation; and Carla Smith. Voting no were Howard Shook and Ivory Lee Young. Joyce Sheperd, who arrived late to the meeting, abstained.
Next stop for the controversial legislation that has been amended numerous times before it was decided to focus solely on strip clubs and sex stores is the full City Council on June 3.
