Why does the Mayor feel the need to catch up with Little Rock? Wouldn't cheaper hotel rates influence people to stay in North Little Rock instead of Little Rock?

Another job killing tax. Are there businesses committed to occupying the proposed new office building? If not, who does the city think it will attract? What does the city have to offer other than Verizon Arena? Nothing.
