SAN DIEGO TASK FORCE RECOMMENDS A PUBLIC STADIUM VOTE IN '98
Published September 22, 1997
The San Diego mayor's Padres task force "recommended the public vote on a baseball-only stadium by the end of next year," according to Barry Bloom of the SAN DIEGO UNION- TRIBUNE. In its "long-awaited" report released Friday, the task force "agreed that the Padres are losing so much money playing at Qualcomm Stadium that a park tailored to baseball may be the team's only salvation" in San Diego. Mayor Susan Golding said that she "definitely plans to put the question on the ballot." Padres President & Minority Owner Larry Lucchino: "The report says we are having a financial dilemma. I wouldn't call it a dilemma. It's more like a crisis. A serious crisis" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 9/20).
