OUNTY GRAND JURY LAUNCHES INQUIRY INTO COLISEUM
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).
