STEEL CITY MAYOR GETS NON-VOTING BOARD SEAT WITH PIRATES
Published March 26, 1996
Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy has been given a non-voting seat on the Pirates Board, according to the PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE. New Owner Kevin McClatchy had promised Murphy the spot as part of loan and lease concessions which raised the city's total investment in the team to $40M. Murphy said the city sought the seat so it could "keep the good lines of communication going" with team officials as talks proceed over a new baseball-only stadium. Other nonvoting members on the nine-person board include race car owner Chip Ganassi (Steve Halvonik, PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 3/25).
