But where will the city get the money? They are in the hole. Supporting the stadium is good, but if in bankruptcy the city has to tell them they will get tax breaks but there is no cash to give. All cities should do that if they are broke.
We were told the Jags coming to Jacksonville would create jobs. If it did it was only in concessions at the stadium. We have not benefitted at all by giving the Jags our tax money. It should be used on meaningful things for the city. Let the rich Jags owner pay his own money for what he wants.
