The more I think about it, the more I think this will pass. If you are a town with 230,000 people and you have two major pro sports franchises, how could you let one leave, or be squarely responsible for one leaving. A COG member gets 100% of the blame if they vote no, for the team leaving, and for any business that fails at Westgate and for Westgate itself, should it fail too.
With a yes vote, they are picking the lesser of two evils, and won't get all of the blame, even if it does not work out. The COG was kind of handed a turd from the previous administration. There is not any kicking and screaming from citizens to not do this deal either, none. Bottom line, there is less political risk with a yes vote.
