Want To Testify At Vikings Stadium Hearings? Details Inside

November 23, 2011 by Nick in NEW STADIUM

The Minnesota Vikings sent out an e-mail blast today informing Vikings fans how they can get their voices heard.  Are you passionate about the Vikings and want to share your thoughts on the new stadium?  Read the message below and contact the appropriate individuals. The Vikings desperately need a stadium to be built.  They can’t get one built without the vocal support of their fans.  Let’s do what it takes to get it done.  Let’s keep the Vikings in Minnesota FOREVER! Skol Vikings!

As you are probably aware, the Minnesota Senate announced two public hearings in the coming weeks to discuss a new publicly-owned, multi-purpose stadium for the State and the Vikings. The first of the two joint hearings will be in front of the Senate’s Tax Committee and the Local Government and Elections Committee next Tuesday, November 29, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in Room 15 of the State Capitol, while the second hearing will take place one week later.
