FieldTurf partner contributions to Martin O'Malley Campaign Fund

One of the FieldTurf "partners" in Maryland  is Huron Consulting.  "Partner" means that these companies are the exclusive installers of FieldTurf products in Maryland.  

The installation of FieldTurf artificial turf projects paid for by Maryland government entities are not put out for competitive bids as far as the Parents' Coalition has been able to determine.  For taxpayers, that has meant that the plastic grass purchase is not put out for competitive bids among plastic grass vendors, and the construction services to dig up the field and install the plastic grass are also not put out for competitive bids.  Huron Consulting is one of the companies that benefits from this exclusive arrangement.

Huron's principal officer is Richard (Dick) Hurney .  The current address of the business is 20410 Century Blvd.

From the Maryland Campaign finance database:
