You know that big map of the GEAR UP/Mid-Central scandal that Marshall Damgaard’s political science students put together in spring 2016? It appears that anyone who’s willing to crowd into the Dakota Hall second floor conference room Monday morning can get a guided look at all those pins and strings.
The Legislature’s interim committee on state and tribal relations meets Monday, October 23, in Vermillion, and they will start their meeting with an 8 a.m. briefing from Damgaard himself on the GEAR UP map. The agenda notes that “the location for the briefing has limited space and is not handicap accessible,” but since it is a meeting of a Legislative committee, the briefing should be open to the public. Committee chairman Senator Troy Heinert (D-26/Mission) should be willing to accommodate as many interested viewers as the room will fit and leave the door (and windows?) for those who’d like to listen from outside.
And if we can’t all fit, then, committee, members, serve your constituents and tweet lots of pictures.
