I love how Sohi was saying: "But we have to educate the public that nobodies taxes are going up as a result of the arena"

Yeah, read the fine print. City gets overextended for another .6billion dollars fronting this arena, but this is just one particular pie. Your 2013, and 2014 etc tax increases will be due to these other spending pies..honest...

What a shellgame. No tax increases people, just shake that special no interest loans tree again. Shake it real hard, this expenditure is huge and growing.
