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.
The SoccerCity Measure E campaign landed a major endorsement on Tuesday when VAVI Sports and Social Club declared its support for the fully privately funded plan to redevelop the Mission Valley stadium site that the Chargers used to call home.
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.
With just four weeks to go until the November election, and in the wake of the most successful Politifest event in the history of Politifests, I wanted to catch up with Nick Stone from SoccerCity to recap the scintillating debate that so many people attended.
