Heard In Natomas: Here They Stay

Area leaders weigh in on news the Sacramento Kings will remain in Sactown next season:

“This is about more than a sports team, this about about our city and our neighborhoods. The importance of this franchise to the Natomas area is immeasurable and can’t be overlooked.” 
-Kevin Fippin, Here We Stay campaign

“The Maloof’s decision to stay in Sacramento is a credit to the tremendous regional effort led by Mayor Johnson. It has been an exciting journey and one that has brought us together to protect jobs, entertainment and community pride. It’s a great time to live in Sacramento.”
-Councilwoman Angelique Ashby, District 1

“We are the best fans in the NBA and that enthusiasm brought our community together to keep the Kings here.”
-Assemblyman Richard Pan, D-Natomas

“Sacramento is a great city, and I am confident that over the next few months elected officials, the business community, and local residents will keep working together.”
-Congresswoman Doris Matsui, D-Sacramento

“We’re very excited the Kings will be staying. Natomas has been their home for over 22 years and this is where they need to be. The Chamber continues to remain hopeful the ultimate solution will be to build a new arena (in its current location), so the team is here to stay permanently.”
-Ed Koop, Natomas Chamber of Commerce president
