Contact Minneapolis City Council Supporting Vote Today/Tomorrow on Vikings Stadium

The question I have for you is this: Do we walk into the end zone or do we sprint into the end zone? I hope you will join me in sprinting into the end zone by sending one final communication on behalf of a Vikings stadium!

Please take a few moments and contact the Minneapolis City Council asking for their support and yes vote on Thursday and Friday. If your schedule allows please plan on being at Minneapolis City Hall on Thursday May 24th at 10am for the Intergovernmental Relations committee and then for the City Council meeting on the bill, Friday at 9:30am for their vote.

 Minneapolis City Hall
 350 South 5th St
 3rd Floor
Minneapolis, MN 55415
 
Currently we have seven City Council members who have committed to voting for the Vikings bill. Fans should contact them thanking them for their support.

We also ask that you politely try and court the remaining Minneapolis City Council members support for the stadium.

 

If you would like to send one email to all of the Council members you can copy and paste the email addresses below into your email editor:

Here are a few talking points to consider:

  • There are no new taxes imposed on the City of Minneapolis
  • The Convention Center tax that will be utilized is a State tax, not a City tax
  • As part of the negotiated package, the Target Center will come off of City payroll which will lower property taxes for Minneapolis residents
  • The new stadium will be used all year round for events which will help support the $1 Billion Hospitality industry in Minneapolis

It’s important we finish strong; we don’t want to overlook the Minneapolis City Council! Please reach out to its members and ask your friends to do the same! Two votes of approval by Minneapolis turn our stadium dreams into reality!

Thanks again for all of your support!
