Below are the list of Convention Center Authority Board Members during the events that NewsLanc will be describing through a series of special reports over the next few months. The plan is to publish the series every two weeks rather than once a month as originally announced.
The concern is to avoid providing so much information at one time as to make it difficult to fully read and absorb, yet not to allow so much time to pass that memories of past disclosures fade.
NewsLanc will run concurrent radio 'informationals' on local stations.
Please ponder the significance of Jim Sneddon's observation in the last line. At the time NewsLanc described the four City appointees as "seeing no evil, hearing no evil, and speaking no evil."
