Metrostars article

"Depending on which story you believe, either the town of Harrison is having second thoughts about the ability to pay the debt on the bonds without using tax money or another source of income, or the New Jersey political machine is doing everything it can to slow down the stadium process as payback to Anschutz. "

Harrison paves way for MetroStars

... all the language is fine. There are still items to negotiate, such as the schedule of actual payments." The resolution passed following a discussion that became contentious at times as several speakers questioned its benefits to Harrison. Councilman Anselmo Millan abstained from voting, saying he had only received the resolution hours before the meeting. Millan requested that officials postpone the vote until they had more time to review the project's finances. "I'm in favor of...

This is all just another example of politicians with no experience in municipal redevelopment trying to wing it on their own. The town doesn't have a professional business administrator because they want to CONTROL the finances. They don't want any "outsider" being privy to the financial dealings. No one in the administration, mayor or council, has the redevelopment education and experience to manage a large redevelopment project. It shouldn't be any surprise to anyone that there will be decisions made that will have a negative impact on Harrison and it's taxpayers. And to really rub salt in the wound, these politicians are doing all this without ever asking for voter approval with a referendum. Borrowing $40,000,000 without a voter referendum has to be a first in NJ. To lay that kind of debt on a town of 14,000 without voter approval is just incredible. But of course since taxpayers can't complain at council meetings they really don't have to worry.

When someone blows smoke up a towns (you know what); They are usually trying to pull one on you. Becareful with whats going on in town. You ask to many questions and your kicked out, labled a trouble maker. The new condos getting built, on the Childrens Field, pouring foundation in the winter, then work on the walkway, after you have people living there? That makes no sence.

i heard they changed there name-is this true

The Metrostars are now the RED BULLS OF NEW YORK. Amazing, isn't it. Harrison borrows $40,000,000 to build the Metrostars a stadium. The Metrostars turn around and sell the team ( and because a new stadium was part of the deal I'm sure the owners of the Metrostars got a lot more money for the team). Do you think the Metrostars owners will give Harrison a share of the profits ?? Don't hold your breath. You would also think since the Red Bulls will be playing in Harrison, they would be called the RED BULLS OF NEW JERSEY !! Not a chance.

NJ residents should boycott the Red Bulls. Let NY residents support them if they don't want to be associated with NJ.

Since Harriosn originally had made this 'poor' contract with the 'previous' owners, the Metrostars; and now they sold out to the RED BULLS of NY, isn't there a LEGAL way to demand a "NEW, RE-NEGOGIATED" contract, more even-sided with more favoraable terms? After-all, the contract had been made with the former owners, whom are there no-longer, and the 'new' owners were not party to the terms of the contract. Can't all of our so -called "brighr" lawyers come up with a 'useful' loophole to AMEND or RE-NEGOIATE or start from scratch with a new contract, with the 'advantages' and 'financial' responsibilities evenly drawn on both sides?
