Washington State Stadium | Letter

“Washington State Stadium” — a publicly named stadium — will promote local and international industries from the state of Washington and result in millions of dollars of economic activity for the citizens of the state of Washington.

“Washington State Stadium” will be announced regularly in every major city in the United States, and promote the state of Washington nationally.

It will be heard globally in countries including Japan, South Korea,Venezuela and many others. The advertising value of the baseball stadium name — $125 million to $250 million — can directly benefit the people of the state of Washington.

No additional taxes would have to be passed by the Washington State Legislature in order to name the stadium “Washington State Stadium.”

Using the stadium name to promote Washington state is one of the most economically efficient and

egalitarian methods of naming the baseball stadium.

I support legislation that changes the name to “Washington State Stadium.”

For the most part, citizens of the state of Washington paid for the baseball stadium.

Before any name can be used, House and Senate committees must be consulted.

“Washington State Stadium” benefits citizens.

Deutsche Telekom AG is a German telecommunications company headquartered in Bonn and by revenue, the largest telecommunications provider in Europe. The company operates several subsidiaries worldwide, including the mobile communications brand T-Mobile. A T-Mobile name benefits Deutsche Telekom AG.

Who should benefit?

“Washington State Stadium” — citizens, T-Mobile, a German subsidiary headquartered in Bonn, Germany.

I choose citizens. I support “Washington State Stadium” legislation.
