Suffolk, Va., May 9, 2010 - With his purchase yesterday of the Mills Godwin Courts Complex, and the Suffolk Municipal Building, developer Mickey Garcia now owns the entire city of Suffolk.
City Council will vote tonight on a proposal to change the city's name to Garciaburg, which is expected to pass easily. Mayor Garcia said he will excuse himself from the vote because of potential conflicts on interest...

  The above scenario, all in good fun of course, occurred to me this week when it was announced that Garcia had struck a deal to buy the Damiani building. Garcia now owns a lot of downtown of Suffolk and it's good for us that he does. When he gets his hands on something, it means it's going to be brought back to life, as well as the taxpayers, and look darn nice when its finished. I hope he's able to get his hands on more of it.
