Developers says Braves leaving town could be best thing for area
ATLANTA – Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said he’s not worried he could be remembered as the mayor who let the Atlanta Braves get away.
Channel 2’s Dave Huddleston asked the mayor that question during a news conference Tuesday.
Reed said he negotiated the best he could without sticking taxpayers with the majority of the costs to improve Turner Field.
He said he loves the team but will hate to see them go and his legacy will be just fine.
Reed said if the Braves leave, he has plans to tear down the Ted and build middle class homes.
“There’s a lot I can’t discuss, but the Braves aren’t the only ones talking to other people,” Reed told reporters.
