Romney Hosted At Luncheon With University Alum

with one comment

By Samuel Rubenfeld


MINNEAPOLIS–A University alum and former trustee with close ties to Republican candidate John McCain and many highly influential neo-conservatives hosted a lunch for former McCain rival Mitt Romney Tuesday at the Marriot here.

Mark Broxmeyer, a Long Island real estate developer who, while he served on the University’s Board of Trustees, was sued in May 2006 by Latino tenants of his for actions they said violated the Fair Housing Act. The case was settled out of court in November of that year.

Broxmeyer would not answer any questions from The Chronicle outside the luncheon as he walked with Romney to the elevator across a lobby area.

The Chronicle and two correspondents from CNN cornered Romney outside the luncheon:

Finding The Students Working The Convention

leave a comment »

DENVER–Outside a Jamba Juice store at the 16th Street Mall, I literally ran into former Student Government Association Vice President Catherine Legnetti, Melissa Calderone and Professor David Green, all of whom are working with the Washington Center at the Democratic National Convention.

Legnetti works security in the Pepsi Center, Calderone “bounces around from job to job” and Green serves as a faculty leader for the University delegation. All three are staying at Regis University, and they commute to the convention site by a shuttle bus.

More to come on their their travails this week.
