"incomprehensible" but lets vote on Preds deal anyway

I can't tell you how many times I have listened to presentations and then watched votes in County Commissions where it was very clear that only one or two people had ANY CLUE what they were voting on....looks like this is another sterling example. HELLOOO, its not the attorneys who have the ultimate responsibility to protect taxpayers.


The Sports Authority’s most vocal member, Steve North, was the only dissenting vote.

“The main concern I have about this agreement is that it is so complex, that unless you are a lawyer who specializes in this particular kind of deal, it is virtually incomprehensible.”

North, himself, is an attorney.

Other Sports Authority members agree that the contract is overly-complex but say they trust that the city’s attorneys are looking out for tax payers.

The new lease agreement now goes before the Metro Council for final approval.
