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 upwards of $35 million.
Unless the team pays for their own stadium, this is another strikeout for taxpayers. Tell your supervisors that you oppose stadium welfare!
Prince William County Supervisors will meet on this issue on Tuesday, June 20, at 7:30pm at the James J. McCoart Building – 1 County Complex Ct, Woodbridge, VA 22192.
