Dear Opponents of the Shockoe stadium development,

Below is an email I sent this morning to the members of the City Council’s Land Use, Housing and Transportation Committee.  You will see at the end of the email that I am asking for those who agree with my position to send these members of Council an email with the subject line: The Timmons Analysis is a SHAM!  Email addresses are a part of the forwarded message.  I also ask that people show up at next Tuesday’s 3pm meeting.  Feel free to bring a sign that says The Timmons Analysis is a SHAM! and I will be making a lot of signs to hand out as well.  Please forward this email to anyone you know who opposes or has concerns about the Mayor’s plans in Shockoe.  Thank you.
