Tonight, controversy is swirling around Macon mayoral Candidate C. Jack Ellis and general manager of the Macon Transit Authority, Rick Jones. The last time Jones spoke with Ellis was on election day when he says one of Ellis' volunteers shoved a pamphlet in his face, and said "if you don't support my candidate, you will not have a job the next day."
"I told him I did not appreciate it, and that I didn't want anybody threatened in that transfer station whether it was me, or a passenger, I didn't want anyone threatened, and when he asked me who it was, I pointed the guy out and he says 'oh he's a volunteer'."
"That's not the tone of our campaign. We do not condone that type of behavior, and we repudiate it," says Ellis.
