Muriel Bowser opposed to D.C. United stadium project land swaps

Muriel Bowser opposes the land swap plan of Mayor Vincent Gray (pictured) - Patrick McDermott

Ward 4 councilwoman Muriel Bowser announced today that she is against swapping the Reeves Center for land for the D.C. United stadium at Buzzard Point.

By now, I am sure that you have all seen the news that councilwoman Muriel Bowser, the chair of the D.C. Council's committee on economic development, is opposed to the swap of the Reeves Center as a part of the D.C. United stadium project. Bowser's objections seem to be two related items: she thinks that the District is undervaluing what they could get for the Reeves Center and she would prefer that the money raised go to improving D.C. schools.

Perhaps Bowser would have raised these objections regardless, but this news shows why the slips in the stadium schedule were a big deal. The Democratic primary for mayor is on April 1, and the closer that we get to that date, the more likely it is that the various people running will attempt to play politics with the deal. As we all know, this was never going to be an easy ride, and it looks like it just got that much harder today.
