Dear Elected Leaders,

RE: DOWNTOWN ARENA

My vision of the future of Edmonton includes a downtown arena in a revitalized exciting city-core for future generations to enjoy and celebrate. This is not about hockey nor Northlands nor the Oilers nor the Katz Group, it is about making a statement about our collective Vision for what Edmonton can be today and in the future. I believe this is a project that is vital to the future success of Northern Alberta so I have agreed to showcase my support.

I have decided it is time for me to step up and do what I can to make this vision a reality. I respectfully ask you to do what is best for the future of our city and find a way, in short order, to conclude the negotiations with your stakeholders and make this vision a reality.

Yours truly,
