Ballpark supporters host informational happy hour
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Election day is right around the corner and campaigns for the ballpark referendum are moving full steam ahead. We caught up with the “Vote Yes” group to see how they are continuing to gather supporters.
As November 6th approaches, groups both for and against a ballpark in the Port City are sliding to the end of their campaign efforts.
John Rooker who is for the ballpark referendum says, “lately it’s picked up. I feel like earlier a lot of people weren’t into it, but I feel like it’s gaining momentum.”
South Street Partners and Port City Baseball held an informational happy hour on Thursday to give voters and taxpayers the facts about the ballpark and bond referendum, hoping to get those on the fence to vote yes.
Spokesman for the “Vote Yes” campaign, Terry Spencer, says things are headed in the right direction. “We’re noticing from our social media sites is that activity both in terms of favorability and visits is really picking up, in some cases doubling and tripling since two weeks ago before the debate.”
