Big Mac: McEuen Was THE Issue

Big Mac: I’m pretty hopeful about the results. Not all races went the way I wanted, but that’s democracy for you. With all the loose talk about Reagan Republicans and “geezers,” I think the main issue here still was the McEuen plan. The council and mayor rubbed a lot of voters the wrong way by keeping numbers secret, refusing to hold a referendum on the city’s most expensive project ever, and insisting, ridiculously, that no tax money would go to the project. Now the city should take a hard look at scaling back their plan or scrapping it entirely.

Question: What will become of proposed upgrades to McEuen Field now?
