"Seattle Opera is travelling to Washington D.C. this week to lobbyforfunding."

Notes from Monday Council meetings
Noted from the blog Seattle City Council Insight this item from Monday:


Notes from Monday Council meetings


Council member Gonzalez noted that the Seattle Opera is trying to raise funds for a major renovation of the Mercer Arena at Seattle Center. She circulated a letter for the Council members to sign expressing their support for the renovation and encouraging the federal government to help fund it. The leadership of the Seattle Opera is travelling to Washington D.C. this week to lobby for funding.



See it here at the 18:56 point of the video.
The city doesn't know right now how much it will directly subsidize the Seattle Opera's renovation of Mercer Arena.

Would this qualify as getting a "throbbing civic pride hard-on" in Samantha Bee's dictionary?

Just asking.

Have a great day,
