Sports complex: opposition or debate?

Thank you for your even-handed coverage of the debate over a proposed city-built sports complex that would be operated by the Columbia YMCA. The headline in Friday's Chronicle-Independent might tend to make someone think I am an opponent of a new sports complex for our city/county. I am not. However, I have worked to secure signatures that call for a referendum on the issue. A binding referendum would settle the dispute and determine the will of the citizens of Camden.

 Also, as part of the debate, the Columbia Y should make a full disclosure of its financial condition to the citizens of Camden to validate its ability to operate a facility in Camden. From my conversation with the Columbia Y CEO in June, I learned the Columbia Y had a feasibility study completed several months ago to determine the type of sports facility Camden could support. City officials should now request that the Y's feasibility study be released to the public.
