As I read the statements of Mr. McCoy and his friends, I cant figure out if they are Deaf, Blind or just raving Idiots. The stadium investors including the city have a great opportunity to redevelop the economy of Wilmington. The increase in property tax revenue, sales tax revenue alone make tax payer investment worthwhile.As of today you can drop the 40 million dollar figure that you are trying to scare everyone with.
The price to play is dropping as we speak and in 30 days we will know much more about that. Are the COW Tax Quacks so blind that they cant see the value received from a minor fee, maybe as low as $15.00 per year to bring millions of dollars into the cities revenue stream. The money generated from this economic development project will go a long way toward improving much needed city services.
The Stadium is just the tip of the iceberg concerning potential development. It seems like nobody in the opposing camp heard or was just too stupid to understand that the city of Durham received some $300 million in downtown development within 5 years of their stadium project. This can happen in Wilmington.
I cant help but ask why so many have so little faith in their home town and surrounding community? I don,t know what side of Wilmington you people live in but it must be the wrong side!!
