The time has finally come for the San Diego Chargers to start gathering signatures of support for their citizen’s initiative to be put on the November ballot and voted on by the citizens of San Diego.
In case you missed it when it was announced, there’s not much in the team’s citizen’s initiative for a multi-use stadium to be built in the East Village area of downtown San Diego…
Per the team’s press release:
The public is invited to join the San Diego Chargers on Saturday, April 23 at 11 am when they kick off the campaign and begin gathering signatures to gain support of a Citizens’ Initiative that would revitalize East Village downtown by building a modern multi-use stadium and convention facility. The event will take place in the parking lot at 13th Street and K Street downtown at the potential site of the new venue.
Chargers Chairman Dean Spanos, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Chargers legend LaDainian Tomlinson and Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers will be on hand and talk about the Initiative and the opportunity at hand for the future of San Diego. The event will also feature food and live music. San Diegans are urged to attend to learn more about the Initiative while residents of the City of San Diego will have the opportunity to both register to vote and sign the Initiative to place it on the Nov. 8 ballot. Nearly 67,000 valid signatures from registered voters in the City must be obtained in order to qualify for the ballot.
