Want To Compete Against San Diego
WELCOME NEWS: A SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE editorial states, "We heartily welcome the resumption of conversations between San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders and Chargers President Dean Spanos about building a new National Football League stadium downtown near Petco Park." Majestic Realty reps "have made it clear that if a stadium is built" in City of Industry, the Chargers "will be among the NFL franchises they will woo." The editorial: "It would be a painful loss if the team ultimately accepted the promise of greater revenue from a 21st-century stadium in L.A. or elsewhere" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 11/11).
