Recently I received a brochure in the mail touting a new multipurpose arena being proposed by the City of Fort Worth.
Half of the cost of the arena (total costs estimated to be $450 million) will be paid for by a group of private sector individuals led by businessman Ed Bass.
The other half will be paid for by user fees; the taxpayers aren’t being asked for a penny.
Even cost overruns will be paid through private donations.
I would like to encourage all citizens of Fort Worth to go to the polls Nov. 4 and vote yes to propositions 1, 2 and 3.
This is an offer we can’t refuse.
