Re "Arena was already voted on" (Marcos Breton, Feb. 19): My question for Bee columnist Marcos Breton is this: Do just four or five council people who are almost unknown to the public, and whose campaigns for the job are usually financed by unknown people, have the right to authorize spending of $258 million bucks without adequate input (a vote) from the people who own the money?

How is this participatory democracy?
