Snippet from Part VII - The final portion of Cara Jennings' Deposition re Greater Bay Lawsuit - Full Version >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Q. Did you see the pool in January of 2008?
A. I don't know. When was the -- There was like a ribbon cutting or something.
Q. That would have been after the renovations, correct?
A. Yeah.
Q. Do you remember when that was?
A. No.
Q. Do you remember what year?
A. No, and I feel foolish for not remembering, but I don't.
Q. Do you know a company by the name of Straticon?
A. Yeah, I'm familiar with them.
Q. How are you familiar with Straticon?
A. They have come before the City commission when I was on the commission.
Q. Did you know them before you went on the City commission?
A. No.
Q. Have you ever met them out in public?
A. Yes.
Q. Who would be the representatives from Straticon, what individuals?
A. If you said their name, I would remember that, but I don't know that off the top of my head.
Q. Has anybody with Straticon ever contributed to either of your campaigns?
A. I don't know. I don't think they contributed to -- I had never met them during my first campaign. I believe I met them before my re-election, but I don't know if they contributed or not. 
Q. Did you ever have discussions with anybody from Straticon about the beach project?
A. Yes.
Q. Tell me about that.
A. Yeah, I met them up at the beach once.
Q. Do you remember when that was?
A. I don't .
Q. Do you remember what year it was?
A. It really all just blurs together. I don't know what year, and they had read -- You know, maybe though it was some time -- Well, they had read in the paper about the building that it was going to be demolished.
Q. The casino building?
A. Yes, and I don't remember, because, you know there was this other thing going on with the building and what was it? The head building official was talking about having to condemn the building or something, and so I don't remember what article in the paper that they had read, but they had read about the building, and so they had gone to the beach, and I guess they had eaten at the restaurant there and felt like they could help with the building, and so -- I don't know if they called me or if someone else did, but regardless, I met with them up at John G's.
