A-Cup: Shit to Meet Fan?

The changes did not go beyond the scope of what we were authorized by the board to do. Or so says Jennifer Matz, one of then-Mayor Newsom's negotiators on the America's Cup Race. Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi commissioned a report from the budget office to project what the changes in the previously-approved agreement would cost. Oops! We have a feeling the new agreement is so complicated that mere civil servants, politicians and political appointees may not fully grasp its contents- although there's a billionaire in the neighborhood who might. Things should heat up next week- the Supes will hold a hearing on the 16th- but everyone else just keep beavering away at that pesky EIR, please.
