To the Editor:
David Beckham and MLS (Major League Soccer) have always said they need a downtown stadium to bring a team to Miami.
From the start, David Beckham’s efforts have been honest and open, and he has shown willingness to sit with each and every one of the sectors of our great community to find solutions and answer questions, rather than hiding behind newspaper ads and undefined coalitions.
Recently, Mayor Gimenez provided the ownership group a second viable site. Rather than the opposition mounting a silly attack against this site, too, it’s time to find solutions to make this happen whether at the port or the FEC slip. Soccer needs to come to Miami, and either site would be amazing.
Mr. Beckham is not asking for public funds. Miami deserves a great team and stadium, not more squabbling that will cause us to lose out. The moment for securing a site for the stadium is now.
Thank you for your consideration.
