Re "Burn your petitions, Hansen" (Marcos Breton, Aug. 25): Marcos Breton argues that Chris Hansen can "make it right with everyone" by taking back all the signatures he funded for the petition seeking a public vote on the area. Sorry, but that wouldn't make it right with me.
I signed the petition because I want a public vote on the arena -- period. It is irrelevant to me who funded the signature gatherer who asked me if I would sign the petition. Besides, we need a counterweight to the wealthy pro-arena building interests that typically hold undue influence in local politics.
