Chairman Esteban Bovo Jr.’s statement on proposed Marlins sale


MIAMI-DADE – “I am encouraged to hear that the Miami Marlins have received various offers for the sale of the team to bring a new era for baseball in our community. However, I would urge any potential bidders to consider the residents of Miami-Dade County who are on the hook for billions of dollars in stadium debt payments. Any sale of the team should take place before the contractual deadline between the Marlins and Miami-Dade County so that the residents can receive some relief to help pay down the public stadium debt,” said Miami-Dade County Commission Chairman Esteban Bovo Jr.
