Yolo supervisors divided on Kings resolution

WOODLAND — A divided Yolo County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voiced support for efforts to keep the Kings in Sacramento.

The board voted 3-2 in favor of a resolution calling for the Kings to remain in the city of Sacramento, with Supervisors Don Saylor and Jim Provenza of Davis and Mike McGowan of West Sacramento voting in support of the resolution while Matt Rexroad of Woodland and Duane Chamberlain of the rural 5th District voted against it.

McGowan, who brought the resolution to the board, said the issue is not just about the Kings, but also a downtown Sacramento stadium project that would benefit the whole region.

Saylor agreed, saying, “It’s not so much about the basketball team but about the jobs … including construction jobs. Many of those jobs will be occupied by Yolo County residents.”

According to a study done by Think Big Sacramento, a downtown Sacramento sports and entertainment project would create more than 3,000 construction jobs.

But in voting against the resolution, Rexroad said he thought the move was a precursor to the county being asked to help actually fund the project.

“And we have priorities in Yolo County that are much greater than keeping the Sacramento Kings,” he said. “It’s not an appropriate use of public dollars.”

McGowan, however, disagreed, saying, “We don’t have to put money into this deal. I don’t see a down side.”
