Mullen has a background in Dubuque, where his father as an athletic director, and has also lived in Galena, IL before taking the position in New York.

What? I thought that position was going to go to either Stan Leach or Bill Adams? I am surprised and shocked. GOP INC., which runs Moline, usually takes care of its own with these big jobs. Hmmm. Does the DOPE know what's going on here?

Apparently, the Billionaire Boys Club and Pryce Boeye, the head of the Civic Center Authority opted to go with someone who actually knows the business. Go figure.
