Entries with the tag: sacramento arena
A Sacramento group opposed to a tax payer funded arena proposal - Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork, or STOP - has announced that it has acquired 18,000 Signatures paid for by Chris Hansen, the proponent of Seattle's Arena bid, and plans to use them to get a measure on the ballot to stop the arena from being built:
STOP is now in the process of verifying the validity of the 18,000 signatures. The campaign needs to collect 22,000 valid signatures from city residents by mid-December to qualify its ballot measure.
"These petitions represent the will of 18,000 people who took the time to provide their signatures and express their desire to put this tax subsidy to a vote,” Julian Camacho, president of STOP, said in a statement. “We believe it would be wrong – ethically and legally – to deny them that right.”
