On Tuesday, the Chargers announced on the team’s official website that they are inviting the public to join them for a signature-gathering event in support of the Citizens’ Initiative.
Here is the official release from the organization:
The public is invited to join the San Diego Chargers on Saturday, April 23 at 11 am when they kick off the campaign and begin gathering signatures to gain support of a Citizens’ Initiative that would revitalize East Village downtown by building a modern multi-use stadium and convention facility. The event will take place in the parking lot at 13th Street and K Street downtown at the potential site of the new venue.
Chargers Chairman Dean Spanos, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Chargers legend LaDainian Tomlinson and Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers will be on hand and talk about the Initiative and the opportunity at hand for the future of San Diego. The event will also feature food and live music. San Diegans are urged to attend to learn more about the Initiative while residents of the City of San Diego will have the opportunity to both register to vote and sign the Initiative to place it on the Nov. 8 ballot. Nearly 67,000 valid signatures from registered voters in the City must be obtained in order to qualify for the ballot.
Paid for by Citizens for Sports, Entertainment and Tourism, with major funding by Chargers Football Company, LLC.
This is a great opportunity for Chargers fans and the residents of San Diego to come out and help do their part to keep the Chargers in America’s finest city.
I would strongly suggest that you all attend and bring your family and friends, too.
This is only one part of the process, but it would certainly help get things rolling in the right direction.
