As a dispenser of free advice, it is my opinion that now is the time to pull them over closer to us.
Be brief, be active, and be positive.
Now is a great time for a positive affirmation, because I know that you have taken an interest in a good outcome and I look forward to the next steps in the process. Thank you for your hard work to this point, and in the future. I appreciate it.
SoDo Arena Proponent
The King County Council has voted to move forward with Sonics Arena.
Now it's time to urge the Seattle City Council to do the same.
Tell the Seattle City Council you support bringing the Sonics and NHL to Seattle!
TO CONTACT YOUR SEATTLE ELECTED OFFICIALS INDIVIDUALLY,
CALL OR EMAIL THEM
WHEN YOU WRITE YOUR LETTER
Clearly state your support
Tell your elected officials why you support a new Sonics Arena and how excited you are for the return of the Sonics/arrival of the NHL.
Let your passion be heard, but keep it clean.
Include Your Street Address
That way elected officials will know you live in the area, and County Council members will know you're in their district.
1. Building the Arena will require no new taxes.
2. Local business and community leaders have endorsed the Arena.
3. One of the largest private investments for any Arena in North America â€” public contribution to the Arena will be fully repaid by Arena generated revenues â€” unprecedented taxpayer protections in place.
4. Studies show there will be a minimal effect on traffic in the area.
5. The Arena will boost the local economy.
6. The NBA will return to Seattle â€” and this time it will stay.
