Mayor needs to use 'moxie' on city's other needs

Published: Tuesday, Apr. 30, 2013 - 10:04 am

Re "Mayor's moxie kept city in the game" (Marcos Breton, April 30): Congratulations to the mayor, the City Council, and The Bee for keeping the Kings in Sacramento. Now I hope the mayor will use an equal amount of "moxie" to reinstate the 33 police positions that would be lost to proposed budget cuts, as well as help to support our libraries, parks, art galleries, swimming pools, and other "games" that benefit more than Kings fans.

Will the needed funds come from more whales, or from city income generated by building a new Kings arena? City-loving taxpayers would like to know if it's safe to go outside, or must they hide indoors and watch basketball on TV?
