Kurt Silcott inherited a mess from Mike Ferguson and Gebbie Foundation. Hockey and Figure skating participation has decreased by 20% since the Arena opened 12 years ago. JSA and CCYHA ice time was far below market level. When offered a fair deal....they left town. The Blue Bloods complain about welfare system, yet the Arena subsidizes their hockey and prefered ice time.
Silcott brought a level of professionalism and integrity to the Arena. He didn't play favorites and held people accountable. Enough time has been given to Jamestown to support the Arena and the bottom line is they do not want to sit in cold Arena to listen to 80's music and watch dancing rabbits.
The JCCDC needs to admit the Arena was and still is a bad idea and to stop dumping money into 3rd & Lafayette Street.
Is Silcott soon to be a car salesman too?
