Deanieleaks #2: Mayor's Office e-mail correspondence on the State Fairgrounds

More from the series of e-mail exchanges between the Mayor's Office and the Fair Board indicating action coordination in efforts to sell the Mayor's plan to convert the Fairgrounds into private real estate. (Jump to Deanieleaks #1.)

The following e-mail exchange was between State Fair executive Buck Dozier and Deputy Mayor Greg Hinote regarding events at the election commission. I am not sure what ship Dozier intends to right. Was it the fallout of the hotly contested August 24 recount of the Democratic primary between Douglas Henry and Jeff Yarbro, who lost even though receiving the Mayor's support? What kind of power does Dozier have to right the ship?

Did you get a feel from the Mayor on the Election Commission?

Thanks. I will now call Lynn [Election Commission Chairman Lynn Greer?] and see what the temperature is for this. I do believe I can right-the-ship over there for them.

I will continue to publish more e-mails in the run-up to Tuesday's council consideration of the Fairgrounds bills.


  1. Was this when there was an opening for Chairman of the Election Commission? Was he lobbying for himself to take that job?

  2. Buck Dozier is a strange man. He carries around with him everywhere a radio programmed to pick up all police and fire calls. Does someone need to tell him that he is not the fire chief anymore? He is simply another politician willing to go along with Dean's crooked plan to destroy the people's fairgrounds while he is being paid to run the fairgrounds. We should all remember that the next time he decides to run for public office. Get a real job Buck. Go to work like the rest of us and actually do what the people are paying you to do.

    When has the man held a real job that he was successful with?
