ANGELOS TO GOVERNOR: DON'T EVEN THINK OF PARKING HERE
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).
