McCann agrees that she oversaw Industrial Services portfolio at Soave that included Inland.

12:28PM Van Dusen says so it was incorrect when you said that the mayor was responsible for the contract.
Chutkow objects and judge sustains.
Van Dusen says it's probably reasonable to say that your memory of events in 2010 with Beeckman about events 8 years earlier might be better today. McCann says she has the same documents so it may be similar.
