On January 6, 2010 Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board President John Erwin appointed a special committee for "Superintendent contract extension and/or search with recommendation" by February 17th.
On January 17, 2010 Arlene Fried (aka Grand High Mistress of Park Watch) reported that on January 20, 2010 "There will be a first meeting of the Superintendent's Search Committee."
Sounds like a Fried-ian Slip. Did Frau Fried Forget about the potential contract extension? Is Arlene Fried the actual Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board President? Time will tell.
