Elected officials are currently debating whether to invest public funds into a new Las Vegas stadium in the hopes of attracting the NFL's Raiders to relocate from Oakland. We would love to have a football team, but this plan is a bad deal for taxpayers. There are better uses for those funds.

Billionaires including Steve Wynn, Ed Roski of Majestic Realty, and Sheldon Adelson - who is ranked as the 22nd richest person in the world - are behind the plot to spend tax dollars on a stadium. If anybody can afford to finance such an effort on their own, it's these folks.

Look at the NHL, which is adding a new team in Las Vegas that will play in the T-Mobile Arena, financed entirely by the private sector. Las Vegans shouldn't be asked to provide any financial support other than purchasing tickets, concessions, and memorabilia.

In cities across the country, the public is on the losing end of deals to pay for stadiums. Teams and other investors make money, but more tax dollars are spent than ever get collected. Costs are almost always higher than estimated.

Let's use our public dollars in a way that helps the whole community thrive. Room tax dollars already support transportation and education, and an increase could make sure our children receive Pre-K and have every opportunity to succeed. We could also hire more police officers with body cameras to improve safety for us all.

Join us and stop the Taxpayer funded stadium. Please sign this petition and help us get the word out.
