MAYOR BOB FILNER FIGHTS FOR EVERY SAN DIEGO PADRES FAN TO HAVE ACCESS TO SEE GAMES
(San Diego) – Mayor Bob Filner is standing by his campaign promise to make sure that all San Diego Padres fans will be able to see the games on cable this baseball season. Last season Padres fans with Time Warner Cable suffered through blacked out games. After several attempts to get Time Warner Cable, the Padres and Fox Sports to work things out, the Mayor took matters into his own hands and went straight to the top of the Time Warner Cable chain to contact executives at their headquarters in New York.
In a letter to the executives, the Mayor strongly urged them to “reconsider your current decision not to provide your customers with Padres baseball this season, and act in a manner deserving of your customers’ trust and continued business.”
The Mayor promises to closely monitor this situation and is prepared to take the necessary steps to bring about a resolution before baseball season begins.
There has been no response to the Mayor’s letter from Time Warner Cable at this time.
