    I like his response, it says a lot about who’s pulling his strings. If we look around the hoteliers are “resistant” to this plan as well. It doesn’t take a genius to see where this stance is coming from. Getting a stadium built isn’t the problem, it’s understanding the “obstructionist” that are manipulating this entire process. Example? Raising taxes? Why not? We pay $38 annually for the DT public library a stadium would cost us $28 bucks, the city would get 5x the usage and revenue than we get from library. Raisin hotel taxes? Why not. We are the lowest in the state, a tot for around 6.5% something to 16% would make $200 hotel bill $233 dollars. How is this “breaking” the hoteliers backs and “crushing their industry? 0 people know what a tot is, much less care.
    The bottom line is someone came up with a plan, AND a plan to “finance it”.
