We’re in for quite a month in the Chargers saga.
For his last piece for Voice of San Diego, Liam Dillon got a hold of a price tag for the Chargers’ vision of a joint stadium and convention center annex downtown.
A well-known stadium finance guru who had previously worked for the city put it together and gave it to the mayor’s office but the mayor’s staff disregarded it. And Dillon got the mayor’s chief of staff on the record about how unrealistic and impossible to pull off that plan would be because it would, he claims, require two-thirds support of voters.
The mayor may say he’s still open to a downtown stadium but this is the only plan the Chargers like downtown. The team could pursue it without the mayor’s support.
