Thomas Enterprises, developer of the railyards, the proposed site for the arena, has donated 2 million dollars to the campaign.
According to campaign co-chair Matt Mahood, the cash infusion changes everything:
It helps us take our campaign from what was looking to be a very grassroots approach to being able to multi-media, you know, radio, t.v. and print, and all the things that we had talked about originally, we can now start doing those things.
Officials with the No on the Arena campaign admit they can’t compete with the millions the Yes campaign now has. They say they will continue getting their word out through phone calls and direct mailings.
