EL PASO — Whether you're against it or for it, most everyone in the Sun City has an opinion about a downtown baseball stadium. Come election day, your vote could decide how to pay for it.
Mayor John Cook will hold a press conference tomorrow to clarify the ballot language in support of proposition 3 on the quality of life bond.
The press conference will be held 11:30 Friday at the Garden in Union Plaza.
Meanwhile, a group against the downtown stadium started a viral campaign aimed at urging voters to "Vote No" for all propositions in the Quality of Life Bond.
Stephanie Townsend Allala is heading the effort. She says a vote against the propositions is a vote for a good government.
Townsend says her attorney will be filing a criminal complaint against the City Manager and the Paso Del Norte group, for what she says is a misuse of city funds for false advertising to influence an election.
