Downtown Arena Debate - via Sacramento Press Club

+

I have not posted here in awhile, but I've sure been following the trials and tribulations of the team and the arena situation with you all over these past several months. I was a bit surprised that this "informal" debate event had not yet been posted here on StR, so I decided to go ahead and put up a link. I am not personally involved with the Press Club. Here is the blurb from their site below: "All of Sacramento anxiously waited this spring to hear whether the NBA would approve a sale of the Sacramento Kings to a coalition of owners who promised to keep the team in town. Key to that successful effort led by Mayor Kevin Johnson was the city's promise of a new sports complex for the team. As plans proceed, a group calling itself STOP, or Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork, is mounting a campaign to put the arena plan before voters. Please join us on Thursday, Aug. 22 as the Sacramento Press Club hosts a debate about the proposed downtown arena. The discussion will be moderated by Sacramento Bee reporter Ryan Lillis. Joshua Wood will represent proponents of the new entertainment and sports complex. Wood is executive director of Region Builders, a commercial building industry trade association that launched DowntownArena.Org in July. The coalition of business, labor and civic groups is backing the project. Tab Berg, founder and president of TABcommunications Inc., a political and public relations firm, will represent an informal coalition now circulating a petition that would put the use of taxpayer funds for the arena before voters."
