DEBATE ON WHAT TO DO WITH OAKLAND COLISEUM BOARD TURNS UGLY
Published October 16, 1995
Gearing up for tomorrow's debate on the fate of the Oakland Coliseum's board, members of the Oakland City Council and the Alameda County Board of Supervisors exchanged threats this weekend. Robert Salladay of the OAKLAND TRIBUNE reports Councilmember Ignacio De La Fuente threatened to release an audit showing Coliseum President George Vukasin wasting taxpayer money in promoting himself. Meanwhile, Vukasin "prepared to release his own counterattack," warning that politicians "could sabotage negotiations" with the Warriors and the A's. Vukasin called for an independent audit of a city and county plan to seize "absolute" control of the Coliseum. Salladay reports that Warriors and A's officials have said they "do not want to negotiate with politicians" (OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 10/15).
