At least one city leader has not given up on the hope to bring the A's to Fremont, according to media reports.
The Fremont Argus reported that Fremont Vice Mayor Anu Natarajan mentioned the A's while discussing the significance of creating a unique anchor for the city's proposed downtown area at the Fremont City Council's Feb. 12 meeting.
According to the Argus, A's co-owner Lew Wolff was vocal about moving the Athletics into Fremont between 2006 and 2009, but started working on moving the A's to San Jose after the housing market crashed and residents expressed opposition, The Argus reported.
While The Argus reported that city officials have not discussed the possibility with A's personnel, Natarajan said the A's plans to move to the South Bay seemed to have been stalled and that "she would like to revisit the idea.
"If nothing is happening in San Jose, I believe Fremont needs to be at the table, even if the chance is remote," Natarajan told the Argus.
Wolff told The Argus on Friday that his focus is still on the South Bay.
