Suite Deal

Developer offers city subsidy if Crowne Plaza ownership will sell

SC: Sure. Chuck talks to me.

TR: Is he still on the deal, on the case, on the assignment?

SC: Yeah. He can't leave now, God, he got us this far.

TR: His reputation's on the line, huh?

SC: Absolutely.

TR: Okay, well let me work on that and see if we can find a live wire.

SC: Ya know, I bet Sal [DiCiccio] would return my calls.

TR: Sal might. He'd probably be a buddy of yours. He'd probably want something. He'd probably call you for a campaign contribution.

SC: Really? Did you give him much?

TR: Yeah, I support them all.

SC: Do you?

TR: Yeah.

SC: I think that's good. You never know who might win.

TR: Yeah. Well reality, that's true, but I mean, I support all the council even though Sal has gone against us on a few cases. That's my district that I live in. At least, I know him.

SC: Well you know, as a resident, he's probably doing the right thing. Just in your business, he's probably not.

TR: Right.

SC: Yeah. So you can fund him as a resident.

TR: There you go. You have to. The company won't pay for it. It's against the law, right?

SC: Absolutely.

TR: All right, well we'll be in touch.

SC: Okay.

TR: Thanks.

SC: Bye.
