Leaders of Home Town Fans, a Seattle group working to further stadium efforts for the Mariners, say they have raised more than $800,000 to support the September 19 stadium ballot measure, including $300,000 from the Mariners themselves, according to the SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER. Rebecca Boren notes that "still to come" are advertising donations from several local media outlets, including $40,000 in ads from the Seattle Times and Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Other Seattle media outlets plan to donate advertising space as well, including the Puget Sound Business Journal and radio stations KVI and KIRO. Home Town Fans launched a "barrage" of TV ads Tuesday, running a pair of spots featuring Seattle Mayor Norm Rice and King County Executive Gary Locke (SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 9/7).
