No Taxpayer Funding for the Prince William County Stadium!
Tell Your Supervisors: Stadium Welfare is a Taxpayer Strikeout!
Public investment in sports never hits a home run. Just ask New Jersey or Connecticut.
The Prince William Board of County Supervisors recently voted to approve a letter of intent to build a baseball stadium for the minor-league “Potomac Nationals.”
The new stadium sounds exciting, but politicians and teams too often rely on taxpayers to pay for them. The proposed P-Nats stadium is no different—taxpayers will be stuck with the bill for the stadium and its associated costs, including a new parking garage and road improvements.
The project could cost anywhere from $60-$100 million.
Unless the team pays for their own stadium, this is another strikeout for taxpayers.
