Opponents of a taxpayer-funded baseball stadium in Wilmington will hold a rally from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Hugh MacRae Park.
The rally will be held at shelter #3 at the park, which is near the Pine Grove Drive entrance. The group will have a cookout and distribute campaign materials, such as yard signs and bumper stickers, according to a news release.
“We are offering the true leadership in Wilmington,” stated Scott Harry, the president of the Vote No Stadium Tax political action committee. “We see a city with low, to no, debt; that is safe; and that has an efficient, well-maintained infrastructure, not one where millions of people’s hard-earned money is spent on a pipe dream that will only benefit a handful of connected people.”
Josh Fulton, an executive member of the political action committee, stated that the opposition appears to be gaining ground. “I think even more people support our position now than when it first came up months ago. Everywhere you go our signs outnumber the opposition’s,” he said. ” We want to give people the materials they need to show their support and nail this bad idea into the ground, where it belongs.”
