We don't disagree. I don't think the building/non-building of a stadium qualifies as a crisis such that we should set aside good governance of taxpayer dollars.

I am on the side of fiscal prudence.

We see where excessive debt is getting the industrialized world.

Public money is a scare resource that should only be used with a promise of a return -- in this case, there is a real probability of private investment to follow public dollars at the WH. Build a legacy for high-performance and amateur sport and make the WH something to be proud of.

The city cannot afford to invest our Future Fund in subsidizing a football team. Besides the fact that there is a real probability that the PanAm committee will not even accept an IWS reno as an acceptable legacy.
