It is true that Jerry Jenkins was unsuccessful in his attempt
to build an arena in Prospect Heights, Illinois. It is also
true that he planned to rely on a municipal bond, rather than
bring in his own capital. However, you should be aware that,
while researching the feasibility of an arena, most of the City
Council toured the Boise, Idaho facilities, with Jerry Jenkins.
Afterward, we had lunch with several municipal officials, who
answered many questions from our group. If no one in Boise recalls
Jerry Jenkins being involved, they must have replaced all department
heads in the past four years.
