Former Mayor Davies supports baseball stadium project
Former Fredericksburg Mayor Lawrence Davies sent a letter to City Manager Bev Cameron commending him on the negotiations that led to the revised proposal for a multipurpose stadium in Celebrate Virginia South.
The message of the letter was conveyed to The Free Lance-Star this afternoon. In it, Davies said he supports the new proposal that takes the financial burden off city taxpayers. Below is his statement.
I believe this is a wonderful prospect for Fredericksburg, now with significant private investment and backing, thanks to your hard work and efforts on behalf of this city that we love. The potential benefits of Minor League Baseball combined with an amateur baseball and softball complex in Fredericksburg can be extraordinary for this area.
This exciting opportunity has my full support and endorsement.”
