The Word of Our Dan:
As these contracts are let, then we notify the people in the communities that they’re let, so there is a double process there. But it’s not about getting a second bang for the buck on these things, as a matter of fact, it’s about informing people early, and then once the contracts are awarded, it’s letting them know after. But to come in and, y’know, double- and triple-announce money that, that’s given the appearance of being new money, that’s just, that’s misleading.
A Great Lawyer™ will of course be familiar with the phrase “a distinction without a difference”.

Students of local politics will remember the Smallwood Rule of Public Relations: First, Announce That You Are Going To Announce Something.

And regular readers of this blog will, of course, be familiar with the cardinal rule of translating Dannese into English or any other natural human language: NOT(X) = X
