A matter of trust

Lee Bruce,senior project manager for the Exxon Point Thompson project, was quoted saying "And we want to build trust with the state of Alaska. We recognize the history that Exxon has had here." I read his quote and could not help thinking, Yes and that is why we (EXXON and Lee Bruce) made our agreement with Governor Sean Parnell and his un-named commissioner of Natural Resources in secret. Most of us over the years have learned that secrecy builds trust in relationships. Particularly when the deals are viewed in bright sunlight. Is it any wonder that some of our politicians work so hard to keep us in the dark.
