98 percent of responses to governor on PawSox oppose stadium

Of the more than 500 emails and phone calls the governor's office has received about a proposed Pawtucket Red Sox stadium in Providence, 98 percent of them opposed the plan.

Gov. Gina Raimondo has received 553 emails and phone calls since February — when the owners of the Triple-A Boston Red Sox affiliate announced they wanted to move the team to Providence — and 540 of them have expressed opposition to the proposal, a Raimondo spokeswoman said.

Nine of them were in favor of the plan, while four were neutral, the spokeswoman said.

Other elected officials have received phone calls from constituents, most of them — if not all — opposed to the proposal.
