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.
A brawl may be brewing in the aftermath of the controversial legislation proposed by Atlanta City Councilmember Alex Wan to oust several adult businesses lining Cheshire Bridge Road.
The council rejected Wan’s proposals in a 9 to 6 vote on June 3, ending months of sometimes bitter debate between residents living in the area and those who own and work at the businesses targeted by Wan’s proposed zoning ordinances. But another battle may just be beginning.
Michael Morrison, owner of Inserection on Cheshire Bridge Road, said he is pleased with the council’s vote, but he is not confident something similar won’t come up in the near future if Wan remains on the council. So Morrison plans to run against Wan, the City Council’s only openly gay member, using his own money if nobody else throws their hat in the ring.
