Statement Regarding the Milwaukee Brewers
The Milwaukee Brewers had contacted Gilbert about the possibility of locating a new spring training facility in Gilbert. As part of our due diligence process the town commissioned a study to understand the potential economic impact to our community. But, Gilbert officials are not negotiating and are not currently in discussions with the Brewers organization about a facility in Gilbert nor are we involved in the second impact study conducted by the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce. The town is pleased to continue to receive strong interest from companies and organizations like the Milwaukee Brewers who wish to become a part of this community and the tremendous quality of life we enjoy.
“Gilbert enjoys a great partnership with our business community and we value each and every business that makes an investment in our community. We are a financially conservative council who takes our fiduciary responsibility to the community very seriously. With this in mind, I cannot support the use of public funds to build this stadium.” – Gilbert Mayor Jenn Daniels
