Lots of wrangling still going on:
Does the fact that there's this much trouble getting a deal for a baseball stadium in place indicate big trouble with DC United getting an SSS? Or would the SSS be privately funded?
Yeah, those of us who live here saw that in the paper this morning. What's so funny about it is that this evening at 8, the mayor will be on television pitching his proposal to "the people". Then, later in the evening, apparently Cropp has found airtime to come on and rebut the mayors proposal and offer her own. All of this ahead of the vote by the council ........... which is TOMORROW! This is just a big mess right now.
Let's hope that baseball for DC fails!!
SSS would be privately funded unlike leechball
Wow. This thing is a first class mess.
Other mid-size businesses, especially those with low profit margins, have similar objections.
"I don't think I'm going to sell many vegetables to a baseball team," said Charlie Coiner, president of Cooseman's D.C., a Northeast Washington wholesaler of organic produce with between $10 million and $20 million in annual revenue. "Seems like people eat more hot dogs and Cheez Whiz at a game. So I'll be paying a lot for something that doesn't benefit my business."
