Some confirmation on the ESDC's mystery volunteer: it sure sounds like she's in charge
Atlantic Yards Report
Who is that unmasked woman?
After I suggested yesterday that someday an oversight committee will ask what lawyer Susan Rahm, a volunteer, does for the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) on the Atlantic Yards project, I got an interesting email from a reader.
Remember, I had questioned whether Rahm was in a policy-making position, and was told by the ESDC that no, she was just a consultant.
"When I was introduced to Susan Rahm, she was called the 'project manager' for Atlantic Yards," my correspondent wrote. "Yeah, it’s a pretty general term, but I got the impression she was the chief operating official for the project, salary or no."
NoLandGrab: Is it just us, or should there perhaps be a little more disclosure ok, yes, a lot more disclosure about Ms. Rahm's role in the Atlantic Yards project? Here's a starter question: does she have any relationship with Forest City Ratner?
