McCarty shows principle in opposing arena

Published: Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014 - 1:10 pm

Re "Weasels infest city's arena deal" (Marcos Breton, Jan. 12): Marcos Breton managed to get one thing right in his opinion piece on City Councilman Kevin McCarty: It takes real guts and principle to oppose the arena subsidy and publicly take on "business, labor, a majority of the City Council, the Sacramento-based leader of the state Senate and many in the public." That is exactly what the proponents of a vote on public spending for an arena have done. They are people whom Breton refers to as "a bunch of old folks," as if age had any relevance.
