AEG Submits First Formal Proposal For Downtown L.A. Football Stadium
Published February 18, 2011
DEFENDING NEUTRALITY: In L.A., Patrick McDonnell reports Beutner Thursday "defended the makeup" of the commission, which is "tasked with examining the proposal despite some members' personal and professional links to" AEG. Beutner, a former Wall Street investment banker, said that he had known AEG Chair Philip Anschutz "for more than two decades and has long known" Leiweke. But he added, "Just because we know people in the community doesn't mean we're not going to do this right." Beutner said a new downtown football stadium could be "transformative" (L.A. TIMES, 2/18).
