Councilman Michael Nowakowski's Statement on Talking Stick Resort ArenaCouncilman Michael Nowakowski's Statement on Talking Stick Resort Arena<div class="ExternalClass043C333E003C4B4C9C980E82EBCABB6F"><p>​"Over the last week there has been a lot of discussion around the Suns arena and a potential deal between the City and the Suns.  I have heard from many people with many different opinions on this.  I first want to say that I am proud and honored to have the Talking Stick Resort Arena and the Phoenix Suns in District 7.  The arena and the Suns play a vital role to our downtown economy.  While I have always supported efforts to strengthen and maintain our economy, I must hold true to the value I place on making sure people are informed and heard.  I want to make sure the community understands the economic impact of the arena, the responsibility the city has as the arena's owner, what renovations are needed to continue operating the arena, and the source of funds that would be used for renovations. I look forward to working with my colleagues, the Suns and the community on this important issue."<br></p></div>12/12/2018 1:20:00 AMNick Valenzuela 602-495-5405
