QUOTE OF THE DAY
Russ Brandon, Buffalo Bills President and CEO
On the first New Stadium Working Group meeting:
“We had a very productive discussion, went through a variety of materials today and spent a lot of time basically educating everyone that’s on the committee on the past leases and updating on the renovations that are currently taking place. Really setting the agenda and the framework for our group moving forward. This is an advisory group formed by the Bills, the county and the state in the lease that was finalized in December of 2012 and we look forward to working with our constituents moving forward and looking at the possibilities of either a new stadium moving forward or a retrofit renovation to Ralph Wilson Stadium as we head in to the future. This will be a process, it will be a long process, and we have a lot of work that needs to be done, but I know that our group is up for the task and we look forward to working with everyone in the future.”
