Your elected officials need to hear your support for the new Sonics Arena.
SOME IDEAS FOR YOUR LETTER
Seattle City Council
King County Council
QUICK FACTS ABOUT THE SONICS ARENA
Today’s City Council vote marks the culmination of a long and productive negotiation process that started with the Mayor and his staff more than a year ago, and more recently with the City Council. I want to thank all of Seattle’s elected officials and their staffs for their willingness to roll up their sleeves and work with us to get us to this point. I think that today’s vote demonstrates that by listening to each other and working hard to address the concerns of all stakeholders that we can make the Arena a reality and bring the NBA and NHL to Seattle.
While we still have a long way to go, I am heartened by the tremendous level of support this project has enjoyed. I look forward to working with the County Council again as they now consider the modified MOU.
