The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has great respect for the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and for the Arizona Diamondbacks. That’s why it is disappointing that the chamber’s chief executive, Glenn Hamer, didn’t reach out to discuss facts with board members before writing an editorial encouraging the Diamondbacks to break their promise to fans and taxpayers by looking for another stadium option.
Mr. Hamer apparently got to talk to the commissioner of baseball about this topic. We have not been asked, unfortunately, to speak as stewards of the stadium to the commissioner or to Mr. Hamer.
