Bartlett: I sent them a two page application and additional page with the broad guidelines

The project will have a wide scope. The project will work with schools to provide peer mediation and economic assistance. Seniors are also a target to benefit the program.
Bartlett reads who the application is from: From the desk of Sharon Solomon, legislative assistant of Rep. Kilpatrick.
Prosecution asks what he did once he received the application.
Bartlett: He said he began to assemble the projects according to the criteria to eventually arrive at a list of recommendations for Mary Lenoy.

Bartlett: Began looking at the large list of projects.
Prosecution: Was Detroit 3D one of his recommendations to receive a credit.
Bartlett: yes, it was a recommendation like I made for a small number of grants which the budget director had said these are ones we want to pay attention to, these are ones we want to fund.
Prosecution: What opinion did you take as far as receiving a grant. Was it made partly on the description?
Bartlett said It was made partly on the comment that Miss Lenoy had made to him.
