From Thursday's Post ("Williams, MLB Turn Up Heat On Council's Stadium Foes"): "Mayor Anthony A. Williams and Major League Baseball officials began intensely lobbying D.C. Council members yesterday to win support for a stadium lease agreement that is critical to the future of a ballpark along the Anacostia River. In personal meetings, Williams promised to support council members on some of their key issues, including school renovation, if they vote in favor of the lease Tuesday. By day's end, Williams and his top advisers said that they had firmed up more support for the lease and that they planned to continue lobbying until the vote." Tony is also is also quoted as saying, "I'm not sure the letter [from MLB to the city council stating that RFK is not acceptable] was helpful. [...] It looks like another decree from baseball." UPDATE: And the Washington Times has an article centering around an interview done by editors and reporters with the Mayor, that includes much discussion of the problems with moving to RFK.  In the meantime, opponents of the stadium are demonstrating today outside the Wilson Building.
