County Commissioner John Taylor has another ad. This one touts an endorsement from fellow commissioner and Portage democrat Michael Quinn, who also opposes the arena plan.
The county commission currently has nine democrats and seven Republicans following the death of moderate Republican Grady Biby of Texas Township. With two democrats publicly opposing the arena plan, it would need at least one Republican vote to pass. The commission is expected to vote on the plan fairly soon. If passed, the proposition would appear on the August ballot.
