"Vote Yes" launches campaign for Wilmington baseball stadium

Vote Yes launches campaign Vote Yes launches campaign

WILMINTON, NC (WECT) - You've probably seen the "Vote No" signs lining the streets, and now you'll start to see some that say yes.

"We wanted to start with a bang" said Jarrad Reynolds, a volunteer with the Vote Yes campaign. The organization in support of building a multi-million dollar baseball stadium picked the weekend of October 6 to get their campaign going.  With the election exactly one month away, and 60,000 people flocking to downtown Wilmington for Riverfest, organizers said now is the perfect time to get the word out.

'Riverfest is a great place to start - there's tons of people here," said Reynolds. Down the street, their opponents also set up shop, but this wasn't the first time they made their message visible.

"We wanted to get [signs] out early - we wanted those Vote No signs in your face," said Scott Harry.

"Our signs are big - they are colorful, once they get out there they will be in the same places that the no signs are, nobody is going to remember which signs they saw first," said Reynolds.

Both organizations say they are also using social media to get there word out, in hopes of reaching as many people as possible by November.

It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.

    New Orleans sits atop an ancient barrier island

    To the casual observer, this looks like any other section of marsh. However, this spot in extreme Eastern New Orleans-- almost at the St. Tammany Parish line-- is unique.
