Wednesday, March 30, 2016

San Diego – Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer released the following statement regarding the San Diego Chargers’ proposed ballot initiative, formally released today, for a new stadium and convention center annex:
 
“After more than a decade, the Chargers are putting forward a plan of their own and San Diegans may finally have the ultimate say on a new stadium in November. The convention center element makes this proposal more than a stadium and the long term future of San Diego's tourism economy is now intertwined in this plan. As always, my top priorities are to protect jobs, protect taxpayers and do what’s right for all San Diegans. I will evaluate the proposal’s details through that lens.”
