The civilian authority overseeing redevelopment of Fort McPherson voted Tuesday to approve a new agreement with filmmaker Tyler Perry that outlines the land he wishes to purchase on the closed Army post for a new film studio. The move comes days after word that Perry expected to pull out of a deal to buy most of the fort, and less than a day after Gov. Nathan Deal removed a critic of the proposal from the authority board and installed two new members at the behest of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.
There’s no other way to describe the support so many people — including you — showed this campaign.
Even when they said we didn’t have a chance, even when they wrote us off, and even when the polls looked their worst, we fought through this campaign together.
We came up short tonight, but this amazing campaign wouldn’t have been possible without you. I am so grateful for your support.
There will be plenty of time to decide what comes next and what more we can do to help the people of our wonderful state. But for tonight, I am just thankful for the opportunity I’ve had to serve the people Louisiana.
I look forward to being in touch again soon. Our state is worth fighting for.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank Mary Landrieu
