    I would like to know what Forde & Mollrich did for their outlandish fees. When I knew Larryy Agran (before the Airport/Great Park fiasco) he wouldn’t have had a thing to do with Forde & Mollrich because of their less than stellar reputation. I imagine Agran brought them on board in order to keep the enemy close — better to have Forde & Mollrich working for you than for the opposition. And I am sure they managed to play a major role in funding Agran’s re-election campaigns.

    Just another example of the VoOC protecting their own.

    Ellzey is the one to depose in a Grand Jury room, or by State/Federal DOJ…he fluffed his portfolio, including his military records. He had intimate ties with LENNAR prior to relocating from Frisco. He needs to be squeezed, all of the toothpaste (incriminating testimony) will spew out. I outed him years ago in my columns @ Salem-News.com. Yet now he’s ensconced in yet another public project—he knows where a lot of the Great Park bodies are buried, has re-invented himself partially because media never ask him the hard questions, the ones that he’d be held to perjury charges over. David Whiting practically pinned a Medal of Honor on his bloated chest. A chest and beltline bloated on OUR $$$. He was first the Asst. CEO, then CEO. He knows a lot that would lead to other depositions leading to hopefully indictments…Easy Ellzey just slid out of town, first the Council put him on the City payroll, then let him escape. Yet why is he still being portrayed as a hero? He makes it sound like he just happened along, happened to be there when the s**t hit the fan. He knows because he helped create it.

    Someone, I mean Someone is culpable in 250 Million being spent on NOTHING. Someone needs to go to jail and like swiftly. This bullshit circus act is taking too damn long.

    • David Zenger

      Yep. All the piddling “he said, she said” stuff is just a distraction from the squandering of hundreds of millions of bucks that disappeared down a rat hole.

      AgranCo must be very happy about the sideshow.

        I know, I know, we wasted $200,000,000.

        But hey! Look over there! A DANCING ELEPHANT!

          Oh, DAMN! NOW you’ve done it, Ryan ! I can see the line of P.E.T.A. protestors, out to the FREEWAY! lol.

          • David Zenger

            I think Ryan should have said “a dancing donkey.” A donkey that will show up here any minute, now.

          This fiasco ranks right there with ARTIC in terms of boondogglery, but at least ARTIC defenders (dwindling fast) can actually point to a building, useless (actually counterproductive) tho’ it may be.

          Can we call it a theft? Why not? Burglars have to work harder than the clown show in charge of the Great Park mess.
