If the referendum reads like the petition does, then the vote in November will not be a cut-and-dried, yes or no, regarding the stadium. The wording is too ambiguous to give a straight yes or no answer. I don't want a taxpayer funded stadium, but I couldn't vote for the referendum because as it reads, Legion Stadium could be in jeopardy of losing its funding and where would that leave New Hanover High School for its home football games. The petition should have been limited to this stadium or all future stadiums, but it didn't and I wouldn't vote for it.
The biggest problem with this petition is that if it gets voted down, then the City Council will take it as a taxpayer supported stadium, which will not be the case.
