From Bellingham to Vancouver, in Seattle and Everett, and even as far east as Spokane, Washington's air quality is currently the worst in the United States. We are literally being choked by the smoke from Canadian wildfires. The air quality is so bad that it's not just sensitive groups who are affected. Everyone is suffering adverse effects from the thick layer of smoke covering our state.
One block from our downtown Everett office is the Xfinity Arena, home to the Silvertips and venue for concerts and other events. Before it was called the Xfinity Arena at Everett it was the Comcast Arena. Before that it was the Everett Events Center. Well, the naming rights are up for grabs again, and the Everett Public Facilities District is preparing to accept proposals for naming sponsorship of the venue, which seats over 8,000 people.
