Re: sonic fans celebrate: i am the gadfly
I decided to watch some news and heard more about the Arena deal:
Here's some local news update (assuming I heard ALL of this correctly)
King County Council members have agreed to Chris Hansen's deal (6-3). The 3 members that voted against claim that there needs more of a balance in public and private investments. If I heard things correctly, the new team that happens to relocate here can still be renamed the Seattle Supersonics.
Now there needs to be an agreement with Seattle Council Members in order for this arena deal to be considered (that's in August). So far, Chris Hansen received a letter that the Council currently disagrees with the deal. Stating also there needs to be a balance between public and private. I think they're also asking Chris Hansen to shell out more money.
But supposedly, it's a big step.
