Dan Voelpel reveals today some of the details of the package that was offered to Russell:
Once of the most interesting documents is a map showing where Russell employees live. Turns out, alot of them are Tacoma residents.
This Magnificent Seven, led by U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Belfair, represented a new affiliation that calls itself the Tacoma Partnership. They arrived early on this crisp morning for a 9 a.m. meeting.
Each wore a dark power suit and clutched a personal copy of a white three-ring binder. Bruce Kendall, president and CEO of the Economic Development Board for Tacoma-Pierce County, carried a cardboard box with extra binders for Russell’s executive team.
The binders contained 158 pages with details of a mission – months in the planning – with a singular goal and an offer unprecedented in the history of Tacoma business and politics.
Another one is the letters of community support.
Voelpel has has something we don't see too much in the Tribune: tons of original source documents linked for viewing. Amazing content for readers.
