Why Did Cecil Thomas Abstain?

It was good news for Downtown yesterday after the Finance Committee overwhelmingly approved a loan for the 21C Hotel project. It should pass in Council with ease. What made no sense to me was the voting:
"Supporting the request were councilmembers Berding, Leslie Ghiz, Chris Monzel, Roxanne Qualls, Charlie Winburn and Laketa Cole.

Cecil Thomas abstained."
When you abstain from a vote it is usually because you have a personal interest or connection to the project or the parties involved.

Does Thomas have some type of connection or interest in 21C Hotels company, the Metropole, or the residents being displaced?
