49ERS OWNER HITS CAMPAIGN TRAIL FOR NEW STADIUM-MALL COMPLEX
Published April 14, 1997
49ers Owner Edward DeBartolo, "who has been all but invisible" during the team's campaign for a new stadium complex, "debuted as a political barnstormer" Friday, according to Epstein & Yoachum of the S.F. CHRONICLE. DeBartolo, after "wooing" voters in the city's North Beach neighborhood: "We've offered something so fair, something that absolutely works, that it would be folly to say we would ever try a referendum again. ... I've heard people say that Ed DeBartolo is going through the motions in this campaign, that he wants to move the team. That is balderdash, to use a printable word" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 4/12). ON A MISSION: Opponents of the $525M stadium-mall complex are "kick-starting" their campaign by opening a headquarters in one of the city's most densely "owner- occupied" neighborhoods and "vowing to turn out the vote" among the city's homeowners (S.F. EXAMINER, 4/12).
