On October 25, 2018 the San Diego Federalist Society hosted an event on the competing Mission Valley stadium site initiatives. SoccerCity project manager Nick Stone and SDSU West Steering Committee member Fred Pierce outlined the merits of their respective sides. L.A. Galaxy radio broadcaster Joe Tutino served as moderator. In Part 1, we hear the presentations from the two sides, and in Part 2 we hear the Q&A from the audience.
We, as SDSU alumni, should absolutely reject the Measure G option that bears our university’s name on this November ballot.
Jason’s group recently endorsed the SDSU plan and that kicked off a great back and forth about both Measures G and E. The conversation revolved around the city’s lack of leadership, the future of SDSU in our community, whether or not the window for MLS expansion will close, and the possibility of the Chargers or the NFL coming back to town.
Of course, in recent months, any conversation regarding a professional soccer team in San Diego tends to (unfortunately) be political. With competing ballot initiatives from SoccerCity and SDSU for a highly valuable tract of land in Mission Valley, these conversations will only continue to be more publicly charged as we get closer to the November election. With that in mind, we’ll save the number-crunching, the political drama and the tiresome minutiae of each plan for another article.
