Re "Arena suit is simply a smear" (Marcos Breton, Feb. 9): As a city resident who hopefully gets to vote on the arena subsidy, I want to complain about Marcos Breton's shameful bias in support of a new arena.
My hunch is that the people in Carmichael and Roseville and Folsom are the ones who want the arena so badly they can taste the $20 farm to fork nachos already.
I want a new arena, too, but I want to have a say in how $258 million of out money is spent. Are the people in the suburbs willing to subsidize the arena? I don't think so. And the only smear campaign I've seen is the one perpetrated by The Bee and Marcos Breton.
