SUSAN HAMMER AND MICHAEL MULCAHY TO LEAD BASEBALL EFFORT A’s to San Jose Study Group Researching Stadium Feasibility SAN JOSE, CA, March 10, 2009 – Former San Jose Mayor Susan Hammer and former Mayoral candidate and business and community leader Michael Mulcahy announced today the formation of the A’s to San Jose Study Group that they will Co-Chair. For the past month, an ad hoc group of community leaders and elected officials have convened to discuss the political feasibility of bringing the Oakland Athletics Major League Baseball team to San Jose. Among others, the group has been comprised of County Supervisor Dave Cortese, County Assessor Larry Stone, businessman Bill Baron, attorneys Dave Robeson and Sam Chuck, along with representatives of Mayor Chuck Reed’s office and members of the City Council. Together, Hammer and Mulcahy will lead this A’s to San Jose Study Group toward its initial goal: to research the political feasibility of bringing Major League Baseball to San Jose. “Susan Hammer and Michael Mulcahy are both committed to the long-term success of San Jose,” said Mayor Chuck Reed, “Having these two community stalwarts leading the Study Group’s efforts is a homerun. I’m also glad to see other members of the community getting organized in support of baseball.” In forming the Study Group, former Mayor Hammer noted, “There are major community-wide efforts that require strong leadership from the City of San Jose as well as outside the City. I am happy to be part of the Study Group and to be engaged in bringing Major League Baseball to San Jose.” The Study Group will keep the Mayor, City Council, and the public informed of its research in the coming weeks and months. In addition, the Study Group will stay in close contact with the burgeoning grassroots supporters of Baseball San Jose (http://baseballsanjose.blogspot.com). ###
