Late last month, General Purpose Authority Chair Shawn Langen was invited to appear before County Council to explain some of strange happenings in what Executive Lamont McClure has called a "rogue" authority. Langen had publicly complained that it would be a "dog and pony show." After suggesting to Council that they lacked his understanding of high finance, he refused to answer a Lori Vargo Heffner question, asking him to explain what he did for a living. It might make him late for a dinner party.
In the wake of that disastrous performance, both Peg Ferraro and Mike Dowd resigned from the GPA's seven member board.
McClure has appointed himself and Lori Vargo Heffner to replace them.
Council is set to confirm these appointments tonight.
Earlier this year, McClure appointed Paul Anthony and Frank Pintabone to the Board.
What this means is that the Executive will soon be in control of the GPA.
