INVESTING IN THE FUTURE: Checketts wrote a SALT LAKE TRIBUNE Op/Ed under the header, “Stadium Is An Investment In The Future Of Our Community.” Checketts wrote the negative reactions from stadium opponents “are all just part of the process.” Checketts: “The construction of new stadiums has a way of stirring passion –- it’s an expected, healthy part of the public discourse. ... I firmly believe that a decade from now the public investment of $35[M] to make this stadium project possible will be regarded as a wise investment in the continued growth of our community. ... The truth is our organization is stepping up well beyond what we’ve seen in other [MLS] cities” (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 9/2).
