OUNTY GRAND JURY LAUNCHES INQUIRY INTO COLISEUM
Published September 27, 1995
An investigation into the operations of the Oakland Coliseum has been launched by the Alameda County grand jury, according to the OAKLAND TRIBUNE. The Alameda County Board of Supervisors and even certain members of the Oakland City Council say that if the Coliseum board makes decisions that can effect taxpayers, then elected officials should have more say in how the board is run. George Vukasin, Coliseum Board President, has been requested to supply information regarding operations as well as to appear in front of the grand jury. Vukasin: "We will do everything we can to make them understand our operation. We have nothing to hide" (Bob Salladay, OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 9/25).
