That’s quite a burn rate. Hotels, hotels, hotels. Polling, polling, polling. Grass roots development? What the hell is that and why is it so expensive? Just asking.

Fundraising, fundraising, fundraising.

The Chase Park Plaza or the Four Seasons? Which do you prefer? You’ve got to wonder what the polling says about that…

Furniture? Is someone furnishing something? Just asking.
