Breton wants us to vote, just not on the arena

Re "Arena vote just a wasted expense" (Our Region, Marcos Breton, Dec. 15): It appears that Sacramento Bee columnist Marcos Breton wants it both ways when it comes to voting in Sacramento. If you don't vote, he wants you to shut up as he wrote several months ago. And now if you want to vote on the city spending taxpayers' money to finance the downtown arena, he wants you to be quiet because it might cost money to speak your mind and vote. The real issue for Breton and Mayor Kevin Johnson is that they know the arena financing hangs by a thread, and that, if left up to city residents, the thread would be cut and there would be no money. City residents cannot afford to not vote on this important issue.
