Jack Ellis, the democratic mayor of Macon, GA, sent greetings to Hugo Chavez with the message that local leaders can stand together despite disagreements at the highest level of government. Ellis, of course, is a local leader and Chavez, of course, is an international leader. What Ellis wrote to Chavez is stupid on several fronts.
WISTV and ROP reported:
Some Macon residents have called for demonstrations and boycotts after the mayor of the middle Georgia city formally reached out to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez with a declaration of solidarity.
Some local leaders have blasted the mayor’s decision to support Chavez — who is a vocal ally of Iran and Cuba who has called President Bush “the devil.”
Ellis praised the controversial leader as a champion for the common man who could offer aid to Macon’s residents…
Ellis, a Democrat, is serving his second term as mayor and cannot seek re-election because of term limits.
He announced in February that he had converted from Christianity to Islam and was working to legally change his name to Hakim Mansour Ellis. He said he became a Sunni Muslim during a December ceremony in the west African nation of Senegal.
Ellis also confirmed that he will soon visit Chavez in Venezuela.
