Take me out to Fort Marcy

Beer and Baseball are coming to Santa Fe

 The City Council voted last night in favor of the amendment to allow beer sales at Fort Marcy ballpark.

During the public hearing, overwhelming support of bringing baseball to Santa Fe was heard, but opinions were split on the issue of beer and the use of Fort Marcy.

When neighborhood residents expressed their desire to have the Pecos League play elsewhere, “class warfare,” could be heard whispered throughout the crowd and sometimes even shouted out.

Students from local public School Capital High School spoke against the amendment, describing the effects of alcohol abuse in their communities. One student even went as far as to accuse Mayor Cross of flip flopping, citing Cross’s stance against substance abuse in last year’s Take Back The Neighborhood March.

Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce President Simon Brackley was one among many to voice support for the amendment last night.

After hours of talk of and debate the vote finally came down to a tie in the council that was broken by Mayor Cross.
