Last week, we told you about a group of Sacramentans hoping to block Anaheim's issuance of $75 million in bonds to lure the Kings to Southern California. The group, called the Committee to Save the Kings, are roaming the streets of Anaheim collecting signatures to hopefully force a public vote on those bonds. They would need the John Hancocks of about 12,000 registered Anaheim voters who participated in the 2010 California Gubernatorial Race to make an election a reality.
In an email exchange with Eric Carpenter of the Orange County Register, Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait said this about the effort:
Q. What do you think about the idea of them coming down here to force a vote?
A. "Personally, I think it is not a good use of time and resources. We've been very clear from the beginning that any NBA deal would be privately funded. Our actions as a city council last week assured that protection to our taxpayers."
The issuance of those bonds were approved unanimously by Anaheim City Council members last week.
