couldn't understand what a master developer does.
Apparently, the fallout from Wallace-Bajjali's departure has changed the mayor's tune.
In an interview today with KGNC-AM in Amarillo, Seibert made it clear that he was not pleased with the former master developer:
"We spend about $1.7 million in payments backed to Wallace-Bajjali for many types of services over a 2 and a half year period," Seibert said.
He said they were already dissatisfied with the firm.
"We weren't pleased with the level of projects that they'd been able to bring forward. We had projects that we were really proud of that they were involved in and don't like what they did."
He says they have several projects in motion and will continue moving forward to rebuild Joplin.
Now let me see if I understand this. The mayor, and from the sound of what he is saying, the city council, was displeased with Wallace-Bajjali. Now when did this displeasure start? Was it after July 30 when he gave his interview to the Amarillo television station explaining why Wallace-Bajjali was doing a good job and we didn't understand how this master development business works or was it before and Seibert was shading the truth during the July interview?
