WASHINGTON ARENA NEGOTIATOR SCRUTINIZED FOR HER EFFORTS
Published July 10, 1995
Michelle Bernard, Chair of DC's Redevelopment Land Agency (RLA) and an associate at Shaw, Pittman, Potts & Trowbridge told acquaintances last week that the firm told her to "quit the RLA or quit her job," according to the WASHINGTON POST. As the unpaid RLA Chair, Bernard has been a "vocal critic" of the city's financing plan for the proposed downtown sports arena. Bernard believes the firm is being pressured by NationsBank and the Federal City Council. Both "flatly denied" they put any pressure on Shaw Pittman (Maryann Haggerty, WASHINGTON POST, 7/8).
