PLENTY OF SUPPORT FOR NEW MARINERS STADIUM
Published March 24, 1995
The Mariners unveiled their plans for a new ballpark yesterday, and although the plan lacks the $250M needed "to make it a reality," it does have "growing support." According to Mariners CEO John Ellis, the stadium plan has backing from King County officials, the Chamber of Commerce, the Governor's office, U.S. Sen. Slade Gorton and the Sports Council of Seattle/King Counties -- and a new lobbying effort by a group called, Friends of Baseball. If the new park is approved, the Mariners "have agreed" to help find up to 35% private financing for construction, to sign a long-term lease and to share profits of the facility with the public (Angelo Bruscas, SEATTLE POST- INTELLIGENCER, 3/24).
