OHIO OFFICIALS WANT TO KEEP REDS AND BENGALS IN CINCINNATI
Published May 8, 1995
As negotiations are underway to keep the Reds and Bengals in Cincinnati, the biggest hurdle appears to be the leadership of each team, according to Sandy Theis of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. Both teams are unhappy with Riverfront Stadium and its inability to generate any significant revenue. While Gov. George Voinovich and state Senator Stanley Aronoff have already promised state funding for a new facilities, they are still wondering how this money will be supplemented. Aronoff: "(Local officials) know the options but haven't gotten over the hurdle of not offending one of the two owners. There has been a kind of inertia. If anything is done for the Bengals, the Reds get upset. If anything is done for the Reds, the Bengals get upset and therefore, nothing gets done." The Cincinnati Business Committee (CBC) is working to help mobilize corporate support. Lauding the efforts of the CBC and Aronoff, Bengals' lobbyist Gordon Scherer echoed the importance of the business community (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 5/7).
