they do not have VOTE on them which means, if I understood a previous post, that they do not qualify as political signs or at least confuse the low paid workers who have been picking them up.

I thought it was a multi-use, stadium complex. We already have “baseball fields” all over town. Add to that the “Go Braves” remark and I’ll show you someone who has no idea what they’re talking about.

By now you must be kicking yourself in the behind for starting out with that “As an eductor (educator) in higher ed” stuff. Yep, that really impressed the heck out of everybody.

When you go and show your support “to” the Mayor ask him for one of those Pink T-Shirts, just like the ones T-Ball and Dukie proudly wear (well, not actually outside where people would laugh at them). I’m sure there’s still a few that haven’t been sold yet.

but unless the naming right fee exceeds $300,000, which is extremely unlikely, the fee goes to Mandalanta and not the City which could use the funds to defray some of the debt service or maintenance costs.

Same goes for ticket revenue; the City gets nothing until 300,001 tickets are sold; again extremely unlikely.

Vote NO

“For the record, has anyone seen the results of the well publicized poll?”

For the record? No
Seen the publicized poll – yes
Supposedly as bad as Civitas, which is the unofficial reason why they’re not releasing the results.

You & I both know that in spite of hyphen-lady’s rant that if the results had been favorable to the pro baseball side they would have released the polling results.
That said its also apparent that Mandalay thinks it will get defeated as they’ve already been asked what they’d do. The article clearly said they’d pursue other avenues. (Meaning private financing)
Funny how they took it off the table in June (To see if they could steal it from taxpayers) only to pursue it after the referendum gets defeated.

Mandalay is not to be trusted by us for any reason in the future.

… most anything you post.

I can’t seem to ever recall a self-described marketing guru such as yourself paint himself into such a corner. I’m just taking a wild guess here, but it may have something to do with all of the nasty name calling and the consistent untruthfullness you continue to purvey in each and every post.

Todays highlights: The stadium will ONLY cost 37 million (even a 5th Grader knows that’s flawed math) and calling the “NO Tax Stadium crowd” (all disclosed polls indicate that to be about 80% of voters) a “low life organization”.

Nice going. Please do keep posting. No one does it better than you.

(Speaking of “disclosed” polls, I can’t seem to recall you ever disclosing the results of the PPP poll to this day. If you really were about representing “the truth” you would have disclosed those results a long time ago. Hmmm.)
