"I'm still in limbo - I don't understand how we can vote without something concrete," said Smith, who worked for the city for 29 years including employment in parking enforcement and as a civilian for the police department. "At this point, I can't make an informed decision. If it was 4.5 percent and everything was locked up. I'd probably be inclined to do it. ... It doesn't seem like a fair vote."
Smith said he was taking Cherish to a McDonald's in the Wal-Mart but he instead led her out of the store.
