COUNCILMEMBERS WELCOME NEW STORM OWNERSHIP
Clark, Drago, and Godden praise Storm players community contributions

SEATTLE Councilmembers Sally Clark, Jan Drago, and Jean Godden welcomed the announcement of a new ownership group for the Seattle Storm basketball team. Councilmember Clark said, We are excited about the Storm staying in Seattle and look forward to working collaboratively with the new owners to build a great relationship between the City and the team. Councilmember Drago said, Im very happy that the Storm will continue to call KeyArena home. The Storm players involvement in the community makes them great role models for women and girls across the region. Councilmember Godden said, This is the equivalent of a three-point play in overtime in a championship game. The Storm, Seattle Center, and the community all benefit from the decision to keep our championship franchise where they belong: in Seattle!

As the Womens National Basketball Associations Seattle Storm website notes: Since its inception in 2000, the Seattle Storm has been one of the leagues most consistently successful franchises. Powered by the duo of Sue Bird and Lauren Jackson, both members of the WNBA's 10th Anniversary Team, the Storm has made five playoff appearances in the last six seasons and brought home the 2004 WNBA title.
