Thurston County voters need to be aware that the proposed Thurston County Convention Center and Stadium District will lose money. Just look at Tacoma. The Tacoma Convention Center lost $4.5 million in 2015 expenses and interest payments. Nationally the story is the same. All money losers.
The consultants will talk about the advantages. But you the voter/taxpayer will be left with an expensive facility and a tax bill every tear. Please attend the county hearing. The hearing is set for 5:30 p.m. July 25 at the Thurston County Courthouse, 2000 Lakeridge Drive, Olympia, WA, Building 1, room 280.
