Marcus Griffith is on the case:
Conflicting statements impede trust in stadium discussionby MARCUS GRIFFITH
Silver tongue: In this internet posted photo, Amplify company president Ron Arp is smiling. I wonder if he was smiling when he made conflicting statements to me over the phone.
The following commentary is the opinion of the author and does not neccesarily reflect the views of The Vancouver Voice, the free world or the little boy who lives down the lane.
Ron Arp is the president of Amplify Media, the company that is handling the public information portion of the proposed baseball stadium. In addition to using potentially suspect numbers to support the feasibility of the baseball park, Arp made conflicting statements to me during an interview.
I am not amused.
In fact, I am quite upset. Not only because I personally distaste being giving the run-around, but when there’s millions of tax payer dollars at stake, Arp and crew have obligation to be honest with the public.
Based on Arp’s statements during an interview this afternoon, I can’t in good faith say he is being completely forthcoming with the public.
