The Cordish Report: (Tandy & Conway Remain Silent)

Over the past few months Republicans have been waiting for the report from Jack Conway’s office regarding any improper approvals made from mayor Jerry Abramson to the Cordish Group in developing parts of 4th Street Live. Not only has no one seen a report, but the Attorney General has yet to reply to the various inquiries posed from council members regarding the report.
Likewise, various blogs, such as therealville and The Ville Voice, (not associated), have reported that David Tandy, Michael S. Norman, and others are working on a report showing how the Cordish Group spent over $900,000 dollars of taxpayers money on development. This report was expected to soften the blow of frustration caused by the mayor’s actions, which resulted in various bills regarding transparency to come about.
Interestingly enough, therealville sent the following email to David Tandy, (Democrat- District 4), who is the president of the Lousville Metro Council, and to Tony Hyatt, the Communications Director for the Majority Caucus of the Louisville Metro Council. This email has yet to receive a response from either one of them regarding the report.
“Dear Mr. Tandy and Mr. Hyatt;

It has come to my attention that Mr. Tandy, along with Mr. Bruce Traughber, Mr. Michael S. Norman, and Mr. David Morris, have, and are working on a report that is expected to be given to Metro Council regarding the expenditures of $950,000 of taxpayer money by the Cordish Group.
Has there been a date set when we can expect the report to be available?”

Mr. Hyatt has sent numerous press releases to the email of therealville blog, but has yet to respond to this email. One of those emails was regarding Mr. Tandy thanking the UAW for their service in flood clean-up, but there has yet to be any response detailing the time frame of when the public will receive the report detailing how the Cordish Group spent the public’s money.
