It seems to me that decisions like this are why we elect a city council. Granted, they aren’t perfect; but, I expect them to have at least a little more knowledge of the complex pros and cons than the average citizen needed to make a competent assessment.

Cameron, I want a vote on this. Council is far from perfect. Mackie, thanks for posting. And everyone needs to make sure they are registered to vote this November. All politics is local, after all.

Sharing this Forbes article about stadium/arena financing. Here’s a quote:

As pointed out by Georgia State University’s Center for Sport and Urban Policy, 54 ballparks, arenas, and stadiums in North America have received nearly $11 billion in public funding since 2006 alone. Taxpayers got to vote on funding for just 15 of those facilities, with just eight getting approval.

In all, roughly $9.3 billion has been spent without a taxpayer vote on the matter.

I love that it is scheduled for 4:00 pm. While there are many that can attend, there are many who cannot due to work schedules.
