Letter to the Editor

printed 12/09/2022


The news that the proposed sports complex could cost $153 million should be terrifying to Worcester County taxpayers.

Over 50 percent of the voters rejected using bonds for the project. I suspect that the majority would have been greater if people had been aware of the price tag.

The Maryland Stadium Authority (MSA) and its Florida-based consultant have once again visited with their long-time friend “Rosie Scenario.”

I simply do not trust their numbers for tax generation and job creation.

I urge the Commissioners to table the entire project. Take the time to have a series of honest discussions about a sports project.

The proposed plan is the wrong project at the wrong time at the wrong location.
