Dr. Woody Hall

On November 6th, voters in the City of Wilmington will decide whether to approve a 37 million dollar bond to pay for a baseball stadium.  Both supporters and opponents of the project are campaigning hard.  WHQR’s Rachel Lewis Hilburn asked Senior Economist Dr. Woody Hall of UNCW’s Swain Center for Business and Economic Services to take a closer look at the issue.
