They will force it down the

They will force it down the taxpayers' throats just as they did with the convention center. The difference being that there was a straightforward referendum concerning the convention center, with no ambiguous language, and the taxpayers voted against it twice. As you can see, the taxpayers got a convention center whether they liked it or not.

I do think that the ambiguous language that this petition proposes is going to gum up the works this time. If it had been limited to just this stadium, I think a majority of the taxpayers would vote against it. I think the language on this one is going to cause a lot of people to vote against it even if they are against a taxpayer funded stadium. I just don't think that vote will be a true representation of how the taxpayers feel about funding the stadium. And if it doesn't pass the Wilmington Idiot Council will use that to say that the taxpayers want to pay for the stadium.
