SAN DIEGO STADIUM COALITION ENDORSES CHARGERS CITIZENS’ INITIATIVE
SDSC PLEDGES FULL POLITICAL AND SIGNATURE GATHERING SUPPORT FOR RECENTLY FILED CHARGERS CITIZENS’ INITIATIVE
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (April 14, 2016) – The San Diego Stadium Coalition has pledged its support for the Chargers Citizen’s Initiative that was recently filed with the City of San Diego.
“This initiative provides a clear path to building a world-class multi-use facility that will help our city retain the Chargers, Comic-Con, Bowl Games and other economic drivers,” said Jason Riggs, San Diego Stadium Coalition Founder and Chairman. He added, “To solve these critical challenges by simply leveraging a tax on tourists will make this an easy decision for San Diego voters.”
Fred Maas, the Special Advisory to Chargers’ owner Dean Spanos said, “The Chargers are pleased to have the San Diego Stadium Coalition on board. They’ve been in the trenches, working hard to advance the stadium issue since 2008. We look forward to continuing to work with them to move our initiative forward.”
The SDSC Leadership team and its more than 20,000 members and followers have pledged to actively participate in signature gathering and other activities to insure the success of the Chargers initiative.
Riggs added, “We know that this is the beginning of a long process. Nonetheless, we look forward to putting our collective energy into getting this initiative on the ballot and giving local voters a chance to decide the future of our city. Our primary objective remains the same — to find a stadium solution in San Diego.”
