RICHMOND, Va. — A spokesperson for Mayor Dwight Jones says a meeting the mayor planned to have with city council members to discuss details of his ballpark plan is being rescheduled.

Last week, the mayor offered to present more information about his ballpark plan to city council members on Thursday after learning five of nine members of council planned to vote against his proposal.

CBS 6 News has learned  that two of those council members who planned to vote against the mayor’s plan, Reva Trammell and Jon Baliles, would not be able to attend the meeting.

Now the meeting has been postponed until further notice.

    The King is not happy
    Sing this to

    “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”
    The problem Richmond it’s all inside your head
    The mayor said to us
    The answer is easy if you
    Take it logically
    I’d like to ignore you in your objections
    To play ball
    There must be fifty ways
    To shove a ballpark

    The voters said it’s really not our habit to intrude

    Furthermore, I hope our meaning
    Won’t be lost or misconstrued
    But I’ll repeat ourselves
    At the risk of being crude
    There must be other locations
    To build a ballpark

    You Just slip out
    It in the back, Jack

    Make a new plan, Jones
    You don’t need to be coy, Jones
    Just expose the facts free
    Throw someone under the bus, Mayor
    You don’t need to discuss much
    Just drop off the Rolex Lee
    And get yourself free

    We said it grieves us so
    To see you in such DENIAL
    I wish there was something We could do
    To make NUTZY smile again

    The Mayor said I appreciate that
    And would you please explain
    About the fifty ways

    The Voters said why don’t we both
    Just sleep on it tonight
    And we believe in the morning
    You’ll begin to see the light

    And then Council thanked me
    And I realized THE VOTERS probably was right

    There must be BETTER PLACES
    To build a ballpark

    Better places to build a ballpark
