Sta­dium trust hasn’t been earned

Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - SUNDAY PUNCH - Buddy Cousins, Ash­land

The pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tion put Rich­mond in a deep hole on the Wash­ing­ton NFL team deal, and it con­tin­ues to haunt us with the $500,000 an­nual pay­ment.

The new mayor, Le­var Stoney, said he was go­ing to change that. That was last spring. The team has con­tin­ued to stall and not pro­duce any ac­tion.

Now Stoney is pro­mot­ing a sta­dium project in the mil­lions of dol­lars, yet he can’t seem to get an an­swer on a rel­a­tively small amount like the $500,000 the city owes the Wash­ing­ton NFL team. The Rich­mond tax­pay­ers de­serve an an­swer.
