In the decade plus since the failed vote in the mid-ninties, the organization hasn't done enough to build goodwill towards the city. Taking the vote public would have been a resounding failure for Priest and Co.

I'll agree there will always be that anti-government "fringe" to begin with, but this really has me thinking. Bailing out the organization thru the Arena deal is one thing, but this is on a whole other level.
