StoryMetropolitan King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn released the following statement following today’s announcement about a proposed public-private plan to finance a new sports arena in Seattle:
“As stewards of public money, we must closely examine any plan that seeks King County’s role in financing such a project. I look forward to learning more about the proposal.
“As a die-hard Sonics fan, I long for the days of ‘The Glove,’ Gary Payton, and Seattle’s ‘Reign Man,’ Shawn Kemp. I sincerely hope Sonics basketball is in Seattle’s future.”
