FATE OF MLB IN SEATTLE TO BE LEFT IN HANDS OF VOTERS
Published July 24, 1995
"After two days of hectic negotiations," the King County Council on Friday voted 7-6 to approve a September ballot proposal on a sales tax hike for a stadium package worth between $280-$325M to the Mariners, according to the SEATTLE POST- INTELLIGENCER. Voters will be asked to decide if they are willing to pay $7.50 apiece each year via a .1 cent sales tax hike to keep the team in Seattle, "remodel the Kingdome, and dig King County government out of a $70 million financial hole." Mariners VP Paul Isaki: "We're finally at a point we can concentrate on the campaign to get (the stadium) done. For the first time, we have the political will and the means to accomplish it on the same plate" (Boren & Foster, SEATTLE POST- INTELLIGENCER, 7/22).
