Dolphins' Stadium Upgrades May Hinge On NFL Committing A Super Bowl To South Florida

ROCK THE VOTE: In Ft. Lauderdale, Chris Perkins notes the special election is "an abrupt about-face for the Dolphins, who as recently as a month ago claimed there wouldn't be time to hold a public election on the stadium financing issue." Gimenez "changed the Dolphins' thinking." Dee said, "The mayor … gave us a pathway and showed us a plan as to how we could do that together and we embraced it." Neither the county government nor the Dolphins "know when the special election would be held." The Dolphins' finance plan "has to be approved by the mayor." He would then "take it to the Board of County Commissioners to get approval for an election." But the Dolphins and the county government "still have to convince voters this deal is different than Marlins Park" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 2/12).
