At the April 17th Board of Directors meeting, last term mayor Mark Stodola stated he never accepted money for his campaign from the Chamber of Commerce or from a Political Action Committee ("PAC") affiliated with the Greater Little Rock Chamber. He even questioned if they had a PAC.
They do - Progress PAC - and they gave money to him and every other current member of the board of directors.
We suspect that tax payer funds the city has given the CoC for years was trickled its way back to Stodola and the other directors in the form of contributions from the PAC.
We will have all the details posted soon. Stay tuned.
