REDSKINS STADIUM PROPONENTS CALL THE OLD END-AROUND PLAY

A new Republican Anne Arundel County Council could mean a panel that is "pro-development and likely favorable" to a new Redskins stadium, but they could also "remain neutral and leave the matter up to the Board of Appeals" (Matt Neufield, WASHINGTON TIMES, 11/11). Anne Arundel business leaders are drafting a plan for the stadium proposal, "skirting a lengthy zoning appeals process and going straight to" the new council. The Anne Arundel Trade Council, headed by Annapolis National Bank President and CEO Richard Morgan, will "likely" present the plan to County Executive-elect John Gary. Gary's advisers say he "would consider a stadium proposal if it addressed" objections cited by a county official who rejected the original plan over traffic and environmental impact concerns. Citizens Against The Stadium II President Jeanne Mignon has "nothing but contempt" for the strategy and said the group would dispute it (Justin Blum, WASHINGTON POST, 11/12).
