New Year, New Challenges

The new year has brought a new DC Council--one that’s much less favorable to baseball and one wanting to make its mark. The Washington Times reported on what the three new stadium opponents on the council could do to derail the process--everything from screwing up the sale of bonds to delaying construction contracts. They could even go so far as to vote to repeal the entire funding legislation, although it is not believed that they would have enough votes to override Tony Williams’ inevitable veto.

I’m sure the opponents will do their best to challenge it, but it’s time to move. I’ll be interested to see what the council is going to do to improve schools and libraries, since that seems to universally be a priority. I’ll be waiting a while, I suspect.
