Is that you T-Ball-i-Dukie?

Correct spelling and no name calling? The two of you must have gotten together deep down in your bunker of last minute desperation strategies and written a joint piece. Too bad your signature of consistent untruthfulness is all over it. The only number in the entire post that is even nominally correct is the "2-years" a minor league team lasted.

You're right about one thing though: "The truth is that no other team has ever made an offer like this to Wilmington". It's probably one of the worst offers made by any team to any city in a long, long, time. It's the kind of offer that pretty much says right up front that Mandatlanta thinks Wilmingtonians just fell off the proverbial turnip truck. One can't help but wonder why certain city "leaders", people with real estate and legal backgrounds, are so adamantly embracing such an obviously terrible deal.

This team has done exactly the opposite of bringing together a sense of pride to the city. What is has done is to highlight those in city government who apparently are acting in their own best personal interests. I suppose that's a good thing if voters take that message to heart. If they don't, they deserve what they get.

Wilmington doesn't have to be the greatest city on the planet. It certainly doesn't have to emulate cities like Myrtle Beach and others in order to be a great place to live. It just needs to be a place where the infrastructure works successfully and and city leaders are looking out for their constituents. It needs to be a place that can simply and comfortably be called "home". What could be more important than that?

Don't let others take that away from you. Vote "NO" to a taxpayer funded stadium.
