The Consumer Choice Center Says Charlotte Doesn’t Need Another Taxpayer-funded Sports Stadium
Charlotte, NC— The Consumer Choice Center commends county and city officials for not accepting to use taxpayer dollars on a new sports stadium.
“Mecklenburg County and Charlotte city officials are wise to question putting yet more public dollars in a sports stadium. If the multimillion dollar industry of Major League Soccer can’t attract enough investors to fund a new stadium in Charlotte, it shouldn’t be up to the taxpayer to foot the bill. Politicians shouldn’t be gambling away our hard-earned tax money on ventures better suited for private capital.” — Yaël Ossowski, public relations director, Consumer Choice Center
