Different paths to Election Day in ballpark bond battle


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Election Day is inching closer, and so is the deciding vote in whether the City of Wilmington will build a ballpark.

You've probably seen the yard signs, bumper stickers, social media messages and even commercials, but how are the campaigns continuing to get the word out?

We reached out to "Vote Yes" campaign spokesman Terry Spencer to see how they will continue to reach out to voters, but he was too busy to do an interview.

"Vote No Stadium Tax" spokesman Scott Harry says his group is handing out yard signs and reaching out to voters through a grass roots effort. Harry says he believes the "Vote Yes" group will ramp up its efforts before election day, but he says it may be too late.

"It's not over until it's over, but when I was in line to vote saturday, everybody in line around me was against it. When one of my employees was in line to vote opening day of early voting, everybody in line around him was against it," Harry said.

The "Vote Yes" group's campaign slogan is "Get the Facts." Harry believes to really do that, voters need to read the proposal between the city and Mandalay Baseball and the Atlanta Braves. That proposal details where the $37 million in bond money would go and other aspects of ballpark plan.
