MASS. GOVERNOR "NOT WILD" ABOUT BUYING FOXBORO STADIUM
Published December 16, 1994
MA Gov. William Weld said that he wants to help the Patriots, but he is not "enthusiastic about a proposal under which the state would buy Foxboro Stadium, fix it up and lease it back to the team." Weld: "I'm not real wild about that. It's pretty expensive. But, I am for my part, willing to help the Patriots out." Patriots Owners Robert Kraft floated his new proposal on Wednesday, and continued to call on state help to enable him to field a competitive team year after year (Kindleberger & Wong, BOSTON GLOBE, 12/16).
