Miller was for tennis complex before she opposed it



Mariano023 In a mailer to voters, Democrat Ginny Miller ripped Pasco County Commissioner Jack Mariano for supporting the $7.9-million tennis stadium planned in Wesley Chapel. It would be run by officials from Saddlebrook Resort.

But Miller, a former New Port Richey city council member, actually voted for the stadium when it was initially proposed in 2002. She was a member of the Tourist Development Council when the project was budgeted for $5.7-million and planned in a different spot (but run by Saddlebrook, too).

At that November 2002 meeting, Miller said Saddlebrook's track record provided proof the project would be in good financial hands.
