    A total of $83,000 to the Corcoran "Board of Trustees" ...

    ...the same group to which the city gifted the Approval of $40 million in tax increment financing (TIF) and to which the city gave the shuttered Randall School for its School of Art and Design????

    The Corcoran is a private gallery and art school that has been sucking off of the public teat for the last two decades. Despite all the public largesse, the bungling board couldn't deliver and sold the Randall School property for a handsome sum.
