WENDY'S SAYS NO TO "VOTE YES FOR BASEBALL" CAMPAIGN IN NC

          The management of 30 Wendy's NC restaurants decided "to
     withdraw their participation in the newly-launched campaign"
     for an MLB stadium tax in the Triad, according to Justin
     Catanoso of the Greensboro NEWS & RECORD.  Wendy's was one
     of three fast-food chains to agree to be in the "Vote Yes
     for Baseball" campaign, but announced that it is opting out
     of the initiative.  Wendy's Greensboro Dir of Marketing John
     Dainotto: "Wendy's is not pro tax.  We believe that's an
     issue that's got to be resolved by the voters. ... We're not
     in favor of promoting the Triad stadium movement."  Wendy's
     management "initially agreed to provide what it hoped would
     be neutral information" about the tax proposal, provided by
     the "Vote Yes" campaign, but Dainotto said that Wendy's
     "didn't want its customers to think the restaurant was
     supporting the tax" (Greensboro NEWS & RECORD, 2/18).
