Corporate Welfare For Billionaire Danny Boy, and Goodies For The Politicians
Good grief, the Loudoun BOS finalized their $2 million giveaway to obnoxious Redskins owner Dan Snyder, after the team announced they are moving their training camp from Loudoun to Richmond. The previous marketing deal was $250k a year, this one is for half a million a year, except now Loudoun doesn’t have the training camp anymore.
These are some of the amazing things that Loudoun will get for this from the LTM article linked above. I wonder how many of these things the people who voted for it will get to enjoy???:
Key provisions of the agreement for the county include on-air mentions/on-screen identification; press backdrop logo rotation; use of the Redskins team trademarks; video production for the county; corporate events, VIP tours and recreational field events at the Redskins Park; a presenting game entitlement, including use of the FedEx Field premium suite; Redskins summer training camp hospitality packages; club level tickets; pre-game field passes; and special event ticket pre-sale opportunities for Loudoun businesses.
So who gets the VIP tours and the use of the FedEx Field premium suite and the club level tickets and pre-game field passes??? This sounds like some I’ll scratch your back, Danny, with some taxpayer dollars, and you’ll scratch my back with free Redskins goodies.
This is as disgusting as the BS going on in Prince William County over the use of supervisor discretionary funds for personal and political goodies for supervisors there. The same level of outrage needs to be applied here. Unfortunately we have no one like Peter Candland on the Loudoun BOS – the crew we have voted 8-0 for this back scratching trade.
