Statement on Behalf of the San Diego Chargers:
The Chargers today announced the appointment of Fred Maas as Special Advisor to Chargers’ Chairman Dean Spanos. Mr. Maas, the former Chairman of San Diego’s Centre City Development Corporation, will advise Spanos and the Chargers on the Citizen’s Initiative process, including the exploration of possible stadium financing plans that would be publicly acceptable, the drafting of the initiative document, and the creation of the campaign infrastructure necessary to give the Citizens’ Initiative the best possible chance of success. Mr. Maas will be working closely with an established team of legal, financial and land use advisors.
This does not necessarily mean that Mark Fabiani has been removed from his role as Special Advisor to Chargers’ Chairman Dean Spanos, but it does mean that the Chargers are moving full speed ahead with their plan to draft a new Citizen’s Initiative to try and get a new NFL stadium built in San Diego.
