Coyotes Announce Plans for New East Valley Arena

The Coyotes will now focus on finalizing a partnership with other public sector constituents including the State and the City of Tempe.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: This is going to wind up fleecing the taxpayers somehow. Public-private “partnership” is just a code word for taxpayer-funded subsidies to private businesses.

It says something about how bad this deal is that Anthony LeBlanc couldn’t sell it to Scottsdale’s newly-reeelected mayor of crony capitalism, Jim Lane.

However, that doesn’t necessarily mean Scottsdale taxpayers won’t be on the hook somehow. After all, we shelled out over a million dollars to the Super Bowl host committee for a sporting even that took place in Glendale.
