DETROIT STADIUM CAMPAIGN STRESSES CLARIFICATION
Published February 29, 1996
Backers of the ballot initiatives to build a new Tiger Stadium in Detroit are raising $600,000 to use on TV, direct mail, radio, cable and print media ads in an effort to clarify the language of the measure. Robert Sherefkin reports in CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS that the two competing stadium proposals placed before voters March 19 will need examination by voters. While a yes vote on Proposal A opposes spending city money for a new stadium, a yes on Proposal B supports the stadium. Only Proposal A is binding. Donors to the effort include GM, Detroit Edison, and Comerica Bank (CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS, 2/26 issue).
