1200 Jobs: 6/19/08 thread #2

Quote from ESPN

The Seattle SuperSonics support 1,200 to 1,300 jobs and are responsible for nearly $188 million in local economic activity, an expert testified Thursday in a federal trial over the team's lease at KeyArena.

And, he said, it can't be assumed that impact will be replaced if the team leaves town.

"Once a dollar is spent it's multiplied many times over by the goods and services it purchases in that economy," said Lon S. Hatamiya, a former Clinton administration official testifying as an economic expert for the city.

And Eric Neal on ESPN gives the SOS effort some attention.
