Public Ownership of the Dodgers?

KTTV Fox 11 in Los Angeles aired a report & brief interview today with L.A. City Councilwoman Janice Hahn.  If Frank McCourt loses ownership & control of the ball club, Councilwoman Hahn wants the Dodgers to be pubicly owned, like the Green Bay Packers.  It would take congress to pass legislation as MLB rules currently do not allow this.  A web-site, has been set up and posted the following statement:

The Los Angeles City Council voted today in favor of public ownership of the Dodgers. The Hahn Dodgers Resolution, introduced by Council Member Janice Hahn, supports the concept of public ownership of the Dodgers. This historic occasion was the first time the City Council has voted on a preference of ownership of this Major League Team . is delighted with the vote of support by the City Council, and is now planning events and rallies to engage Dodger Fans throughout Southern California.

It's gonna take a lot more than a City Council Resolution to get this done.

True to the Blue!
