Twins stadium opponents haven't given up yet
Opponents of the Hennepin County Twins ballpark finance plan showed up in force for a public hearing Tuesdsay night in Minneapolis. The majority of the 45 people who testified in front of the Hennepin County Board voiced their opposition to the plan that would impose a county-wide sales tax to raise nearly $400 million for the stadium construction. The board is expected to pass the measure next week. But opponents told commissioners that it wasn't too late to change their minds.
The ironic thing is these people tend to be the ones who become outraged when funding for their own favored cultural institutions (art museums, public parks, public radio etc.) is cut.
