Gazette: Residents optimistic soccer stadium would create jobs, help businesses

Residents optimistic soccer stadium would create jobs, help businesses; Prince George's officials pitching economic perks to secure D.C. United stadium.
Gazette, 26 Feb 2009 (Skalski).

Comment: Seems like a very one-sided pro-stadium propaganda piece that makes no mention of the opposition to the stadium that has appeared on the PG-Politics andPrinceGeorges_Discussion mailing lists, or of the doubts reported by the Gazette earlier .  It is unfortunate that the Gazette did not contact such vocal opponents as Judy Robinson or Mel Franklin for some balance in this piece.
