SUBJECT: Visit from Scott Rutherford of E .D.A.
On Monday, May 27, Scott Rutherford from E.D.A. in Washington
paid us a visit.
His main objective in coming to Atlanta was to inv estigate
Model Neighborhood, Inc. to see if there was any way that E oD.A.
could be of assistance. In doing this he checked with me and
the rest of the "team" to see what we were doing with Moody's
project. Upon learning that we hadn't done anything about it
other than to keep it under a watchful eye, he asked if we had
offe red our services .
Te ch and J erry Ho r ton both h a v e o ffe r e d their service s t o
Moo dy's group but Moody only responded to Tech's offer to
possibly ma ke a feasibility study co - sponsored b y Model Neighb orhood, I n c . and Lock heed. This is t he only project which Moody
f e lt we c o uld h a ndl e.
Moody has ta l ked t o Johnny Johns on, but whe n Joh nny o ffered he lp
Mood sa i d, "Man , we d o n ' t need y our help. While you guys sit
a r ound pla nning , we' out doin'!"
So, that's whe re we stand at
p re sent with Mode l Neighbor hood, Inc .
The other thi ng we ta l ked abo u t with Scott was the pro b l em of
contributed time. Roy Cooper l aid all his cards on the table
with the help of me and Horton, only to learn that Scott didn ' t
know the technicalities of c o ntract procedures and t h erefore,
could be o f no he lp t o us. He d i d s ay, however, t hat he wou ld
put us in touch with E . D.A. ' s l egal department who would be most
knowledgeable about these things and they woul d be able to help
us find an solution . He fe l t s ure that a mutual understanding
could be reache d.
