Hard to say which way she'll go.

While all concerns are legit since they don't know what the details would be on the funding proposal so it'll be hard to say which way they will end up going.
There's some local politics involved here too, Licata is quite likely to fun for Mayor next year. So he's 1) perhaps reluctant to support any cause that may benefit the incumbent McGinn, and 2) harp on the "no public funds" card.

As for Godden, she's been around so long she probably saw the original Seattle Metropolitans in person...
