Ballpark and taxpayers

Cock-a-doodle-doo..and look what happened to the Roosters, too! We didn't even have to build the ball park and where are they. Now, you want to build this extravagant ball park that city residents would have to fund. The City Taxpayers, not renters and not tourists or those outside of city limits, would have the burden of increased taxes and cuts of services. These are the folks that you have already penalized with CFPU rates that some have difficulty paying and then their taxes would be so high they would be forced to leave the city. These are also the same people that would never be able to see the team play because they are too broke to be able to afford to come out to the game (admission, parking--probably get a parking ticket on top of it all---add another $20 to the city funds). Of course, your minds are already set; so for some of us, we best get the FOR SALE signs up before the tax rates go up and head to the country.
