MILWAUKEE POLL SHOWS FAITH REMAINS ON BREWERS PROJECT
Published March 19, 1996
Despite the Brewers' recent troubles completing their share of financing for a new stadium, Milwaukee County residents continue to have faith the project will be completed, according to a new MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL poll. While respondents "overwhelmingly favor" building on current stadium grounds rather than a downtown site, 71% believe the new facility will get built. The plan is to build on the current site, but many business and political leaders still prefer downtown. Brewers President Bud Selig "adamantly opposes" that idea. On financing, Brewers VP Laurel Prieb said the team continues to work toward lining up a $50M loan before a noon Friday stadium board deadline (Kenneth Lamke, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 3/19).
