SAN FRANCISCO OFFICIALS QUESTION CANDLESTICK NAME CHANGE
Published September 12, 1995
Several San Francisco lawmakers are "stewing and demanding answers" about how Candlestick Park became 3Com Park so suddenly, according to the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE. S.F. Supervisor Tom Ammiano yesterday presented the Recreation and Parks Department with a "host of detailed questions." Ammiano: "I felt somewhat railroaded. ... It was not an open process, so now I want to know if it was done through proper channels." Ammiano also wants to make sure they got the best deal: "I am not necessarily against selling the name ... but $500,000 isn't a lot of money. It's chump change" (Clarence Johnson, S.F. CHRONICLE, 9/12).
