The four commissioners voting in favor of this proposal made "at the behest of Mr. Wilf" should at least have the integrity to disclose that they are no longer working in the interest of the taxpayers of Ramsey County but are, in fact, being directed by Mr. Wilf.

This is really just another attempt to keep the waning public and legislative interest in the stadium from causing the project to completely stall out. If it doesn't cost anything to ask who's interested in building a stadium then this is a ho-hum. However, if it does involve costs and Ramsey County doesn't get the approval to do the project there should be no coming to the Legislature to ask for reimbursement for expenses.

"Commissioner Tony Bennett also voted for the proposal." ---- Oh, no kidding? I'm shocked.

The stadium opponents have had their say. This project, from Ramsey County's perspective, is about progress and urban renewal that will net tens of millions of dollars in tax revenue on an annual basis while also creating jobs. If opponents would rather the army ammunitions sight sit barren and chemically infested from here to eternity, that's their prerogative; but don't hold it against Ortega and the others who are trying to take the county into the 21st century. There will always be a lot of people who say NO to things. Visionaries just have to stay motivated.

The Board might want to put their hands on the money before pushing this loser project along.

this is about massive profits for the Wilf's on the backs of the tax payers. The Wilf's never said the dome was obsolete, only that they didn't make enough profit at the dome. They don't know didly about football, only how to make money.

Something off about the gung-ho cheerleading of commissioners Bennett and Ortega. A quid quo pro situation?
