Her primary role as a co-owner and board member of the Cubs is handling government and community relations and the team’s philanthropic work, which last year totaled about $1.3 million in grants.
“We really want to grow that,” she said. “I’d like to see it double.”
For Laura, one of the more refreshing parts of her foray into the sports world has been that nobody seems to care that she’s a lesbian.
She feels accepted by people in the Cubs organization — from executives in the boardroom to ushers in the stands — just as she does with her family.
The bottom line with Laura:
A. She is tough.
B. She is smart.
C. She is decisive.
D. She does not care what others think.
E. She is direct and upfront.
F. She pulls no punches.
IMO, the wrong sibling runs the day to day operations.
Laura might be the Rocky-in-hiding for the Cubs.
Too bad we are saddled with Cap’n. Until that changes… long live the Cub$.
