    Not on the front end. The public is a check on government, which UL is. Why do you think FOIA exist?

    After the fact doesn’t include a voice in negotiations. So you are in agreement.

    I understand what you are saying.

    It being their business is being artificially withheld, but it most definitely should be made to feel it is their business.

    If the University doesn't figure out a way to make Dan's feel it is their business, "academic" donations will dry up.

    Fact: Athletic donors are the biggest academic donors.

    If mismanagement is focal, the endowment stagnates.

    Huge voice.

    Ohhhhhh I don't know about this. The university is a public entity that is funded by the taxpayer. Also in athletics, fans are customers. If I go to a baseball game as a RCAF donor/paid customer and I have to be inconvenienced by an event that is held at the same property that has absolutely nothing to do with the university, AND it's allowed by a bad deal; it is DEFINITELY my business. Basically, you're putting the bad deal ahead of the paying customer.

    Lord. You are inconvenienced at a baseball game.

    Just because the university is a state university and you are a taxpayer doesnít make you have a voice in government run agencies. So, you think you have the right to have a say in LCG business dealings, the airport commission, education business, the BVD, Highway dealings, etc? They are all government agencies.

    Do those dealings actively inconvenience the fan during university sponsored events?

    Not saying I should be in the meeting room, but I can definitely say that it's a bad deal.

    The $303 million raised so far in the campaign includes the two largest gift commitments in University history – $20 million from LHC Group to the College of Nursing and Allied Health Professions and $15 million from Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center for the renovation of Cajun Field. The University received both pledges this year.

    Itís a public university. So yea, it is our business.

    No need to respond though. Youíre clearly someone who has something to lose here. Youíre either entrenched or actually work for the university.

    They have public meetings and hearings for these things.
