All the Risk and No Reward

WOW...these developers are delusional. Here's hoping that the citizens of Wilmington recognize the similarity of these "baseball" advocates to horse traders, snake oil salesmen, wheeler dealers, shysters, and con artists. Who in their right mind would pay for their base ball stadium? Do not trust anyone who wants your money. Simple really.

"We know that the ballpark will make this area of downtown a true destination for entertainment and business."

No, it won't. But, if by some astronomical chance it goes according to their plan, it will bring traffic, noise, congestion, more parking problems...all things that detract from quality of life. If it fails, it will be abandoned by the Atlanta Braves...leaving behind decades of debt.

But for argument's sake, let's say the stadium gets built and every game is sold out. For the Wilmington tax payer it would be the same as if there was zero attendance...because this is a zero profit sharing proposition! This is a proposition where, from a business perspective, there is NO upside to the taxpayer. None. Not ever.

Vote NO.
