Ballpark supporters host informational happy hour

READ MORE: Ballpark supporters host informational happy hour

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Election Day is right around the corner, and campaigns for the ballpark referendum in Wilmington are moving full steam ahead. We caught up with the "Vote Yes" group to see how they are continuing to gather supporters.

As November 6 approaches, groups both for and against a ballpark in the Port City are sliding to the end of their campaign efforts.

"Lately it's picked up," said John Rooker, who supports the $37 million referendum. "I feel like earlier a lot of people weren't into it, but I feel like it's gaining momentum."

South Street Partners and Port City Baseball held an informational happy hour Thursday to give voters and taxpayers the facts about the ballpark and bond referendum, hoping to get those on the fence to vote yes.

Terry Spencer, spokesman for the "Vote Yes" campaign, says things are headed in the right direction.

"We're noticing from our social media sites that activity both in terms of favorability and visits is really picking up in some cases doubling and tripling since two weeks ago before the debate," Spencer said.
