Mark Martin on the ropes? Nope



ON THE ROPE: Will Mark Martin dangle?
  • ON THE ROPE: Will Mark Martin dangle?
The Tolbert Report is keeping up with Secretary of State Mark Martin's planned $50,000-plus retreat to the Soderquist Center at John Brown University, a little government spending I first uncovered with a torturous FOI encounter with the not-so-transparent office.

Jason Tolbert says he's told the retreat will include one of those "ropes" courses, a putative team-building activity where participants walk tightropes and such. No nooses allowed. The Soderquist website calls the activity Base Camp. Tolbert's trying to find out who, precisely, will be on the ropes, as shown.

Team-building activities do NOT include, as best we can tell, maintaining proper logs for use of state vehicles.

UPDATE: Tolbert updates. He says the ropes course will not be part of events on the retreat. But his updated post provides video of the deluxe facilities where the Martin staff can do some strategery on expense reimbursements, FOI compliance, authorized spending of apportionment funds and other important topics.
