We Are Boycotting Flying Squirrels/Shockoe Stadium Proposal

This petition had 1,238 supporters


We, the undersigned, stand in opposition to the Mayor's Shockoe stadium proposal. There are many reasons to oppose a stadium in Shockoe Bottom: the questionable finances of the developers' plan, parking, traffic, leaving the best and most accessible site for baseball in the city and disrespecting the incredible history of what once was the largest slave-trading district north of New Orleans. Some of us are county residents who do not want to travel into the Bottom for a baseball game. 

As long as the Shockoe stadium proposal is still a threat, from this point forward we promise to boycott the Flying Squirrels' baseball games and other supporting businesses. This is not something we take lightly- many of us like the Flying Squirrels and recognize the harmful economic effect that this boycott will have. However, with the Mayor and proponents not allowing a referendum or citizens' vote on the Shockoe stadium proposal, and in effect muting our political voice, we have decided it is time to exercise our economic voice.
