Supporters of the Mayor's $900 million tax proposal think Saturday's overwhelming 'No' vote for the bond doesn't put a damper on progress in Baton Rouge.

"The future of Baton Rouge will be affected positively because of the people who came together to work for this," said Todd Teepell of the group Progress Is, "that in it of itself is encouraging. It's not the result we were looking for but we're excited about that, we're excited about the future."

The group said they would support the Mayor if he decided to give the tax proposal another shot. News 2 spoke with Mayor Kip Holden Saturday evening, who said he's not sure if he'll bring the bond up again next year.
