Seattle Times letters to the editor

Husky Stadium

On their own

It is absolutely disgusting that the University of Washington is lobbying for tax funds to pay for any part of a new Husky Stadium [“Huskies may use Qwest Field in 2010,” local news, Jan. 12].

As the Seahawks have already given permission to use Qwest Field in the future, there is no reason to rebuild an on-campus stadium until the UW can pay for it all by itself.

In these trying times, the majority of the population is struggling and won’t be getting a bail out. If UW educators are supposedly building the leaders of our future, they are setting a bad example by asking for and expecting a handout for this unnecessary stadium.

— Ted Calvert, Seattle
