Miami Today, March 25, 2010
In this thoughtful editorial, Miami Today editor Michael Lewis argues that funding for the Marine Stadium should be done only if the Marine Stadium has legitimate uses and a viable business plan is developed.

We agree.

We've been quietly working on these feasibility issues for two years and they are extremely important. Scroll down to read an article ("Preservation Today" November 2009) on potential end users and management by Don and Nina Worth, Co-Founders of Friends of Marine Stadium. Since the article was written in July of 2009, we've identified many more end users and have had continued discussions with groups that we believe could manage the Marine Stadium.

The issues that Michael Lewis raises are key-and we are very confident that a successful operating plan can be developed.

South Florida Business Journal, November 11, 2009
Mayor Regalodo promises revitalization of the Marine Stadium in his swearing in speech. For a long time, the Mayor has been a strong proponent of the Marine Stadium. He has been to numerous meetings of Friends of Marine Stadium and, in fact, he was active in protecting the Stadium even before Friends of Marine Stadium was formed.

We are delighted with Mayor Regalado's leadership on the Marine Stadium and we look forward to working with him!
