ANGELOS TO GOVERNOR: DON'T EVEN THINK OF PARKING HERE
Published November 25, 1997
Orioles Owner Peter Angelos, in a letter dated November 20, termed comments made last week by MD Gov. Parris Glendening urging the Orioles and the MD Stadium Authority (MSA) to "work more closely" on stadium issues "grossly inappropriate," according to Jon Morgan of the Baltimore SUN. Angelos' letter "reasserted the team's opposition" to a MSA proposal to have a parking garage developed at Camden Yards in connection with an "urban entertainment complex." Glendening was critical of the Orioles last week for their stated opposition to the project, but Angelos said that his remarks reflect "a serious lack of knowledge of what is occurring." Morgan adds that MSA Exec Dir Bruce Hoffman has called Angelos' office to request a meeting, but as of yesterday, Angelos "had not responded to the call." Glendening's Deputy Chief of Staff, David Iannucci, "declined to comment" on the letter (SUN, 11/25).
