Rewind: Live chat on proposed arena with Chris Hansen and Dave Gering

The man behind the proposal for a Sodo arena and an opponent to the proposal took comments from readers in a live chat on Thursday.

Participating in the chat were:

Chris Hansen

• Chris Hansen, the San Francisco-based managing partner of Valiant Capital. Hansen grew up in Seattle and graduated from Roosevelt High School. He wants to build the new arena in the Sodo neighborhood of Seattle.

• Dave Gering, executive director of the Manufacturing Industrial Council of Seattle (MIC). The MIC is a non-profit group that represents Seattle area industrial firms. The MIC has worked on a variety of transportation issues in Sodo for the past 15 years.

The chat was co-moderated by Lynn Thompson, Times City Hall reporter, and Joni Balter, Times assistant political editor.
