I mean, who is this guy?
He's 72 years old and lives in Barrington. Wow, he's going to be 80 in 8 years. By the time the ballpark is completed, he'll be like 75.
And Barrington? Small, wealthy town on the bay. I'll bet he's a Rumstick resident. I was once at a supermarket in Barrington and someone had a Rumstick vanity plate. I'll bet it was Skeffington!
From Ted Nesi's article on 2/24: "If the big money is moving, Jim Skeffington will be there,” Providence
Journal columnist Peter Phipps remarked in 1995. “It’s his specialty.”
You should really read the entire article.
Also: "He is the godfather of moral obligation bonds." So I'm now reading about moral obligation bonds, which is fascinating! (NOT.)
Skeffington's probably bros with Jerry Kapstein, right? He's a "special counsel" to the Boston Red Sox.
Okay, I'll be back.
