Today Cory Briggs sent a letter to Ray Ellis, a candidate for San Diego City Council District 1, to clarify the effect of the Citizens’ Plan for the Responsible Management of Major Tourism and Entertainment Resources on a downtown football stadium. Last week members of his campaign team made inaccurate statements about the Citizens’ Plan, so Cory provided clarification and offered to meet with Mr. Ellis and his team to educate them about the Citizens’ Plan.

2016-04-05: Ray Ellis responded as follows to Cory’s letter:
Good Morning Mr. Briggs,
Thank you for your letter and reaching out. I agree, we need to continue to have a robust discussion on this very complicated issue.
As a long time season ticket holder, I would love to see the Chargers remain in San Diego, but not by risking jobs, our local economy or precious taxpayer dollars.
Thank you for the offer to meet in person. I don’t think that’s necessary at this time, but may reach out at a future date.
All the best ~ Ray
Raymond G. Ellis
