To be fair, I doubt too many of these conferences are ever held in places like Fargo.

About the only thing anyone concerning the gov of Detroit is on top of is the landfill. These people are delusional.

quote:

One well-attended session covered how to avoid front-page scandals. According to presenter Lydia Lee, a pension attorney from Oklahoma, the session touched on a topic familiar back in Detroit: The indictment this spring of two former city pension officials for an alleged $200 million bribery and kickback scheme, in a case that will come to trial next March.


/sigh

Why not teleconference and save a few bucks. They could even serve Mai-Tais and still save a bundle.

Why do you have to conference with people in another city that you see every day in your own city?

I know the answer but it needs to be noted.

Obviously past participation has paid huge dividends.
