Notes re. Mayor's Proposal


 Proposal makes process more complicated. It promotes lack
of transparency, conflicts of interest, & public confusion
key: appointment power  New CCDC & SEDC Board slots appointed by Mayor & Council
raise red flags about independence of nonprofit corporations
reports to  Mayoral appointment of CCDC & SEDC Executive Directors
muddies accountability for Redevelopment activities &
contract relationship
obscures lines of authority
 Continuing conflict of interest when Mayor serves as Agency
Executive Director
