Which, if true, is a real shame. Keep in mind B&M finished last in the RFP and were disqualified based on a few of their answers. Are we just planning to turn a blind eye to that and gift them the project? Doubtful.
No, that's why they joined with AECOM. What they want to do is kick out edgemoor, and then start negotiations with AECOM as runner up, who has already picked up burns and mac.

...which would likely immediately prompt a lawsuit by Edgemoor, and rightfully so. It would also significantly delay opening of the airport.

Schulte and James have been pretty clear that booting Edgemoor restarts the procurement process. It's not as easy as walking away from one deal and negotiating another.

Honestly, they should totally be able to drink though this. All money raised to the general fund.

Oh ffs... These people love to hear their own voice.

Justus and Reed should have addressed the issues that he is bringing up ahead of time. These issues have been publically announced, they knew it was going to be brought up.

Why does he keep creepily bringing up McManus?

"Remember that one time we got really drunk and accidenta....oh boy, I didn't mean to point at you there."


And wtf can't people learn how to mute their phones?

I have a feeling that they’ve already set this up to barely pass. I think all want it to pass and avoid the bad perception of incompetency and mismanagement but want to make it look like they’re fight for their constituents. Those needing the political cover can vote no but not hold up progress. Just a guess. Games.

Can we get these people some therapy dogs ASAP. A few need some cuddles and hugs. They are being *gasp* judged by people. I know, I know...
