Reilly sent the letter to the vice president of finance at Florida Gulf Coast University in August, which also supports a Coconut Road interchange and was once a client of Potomac Partners.

Reilly also offers his credentials as an expert in transportation law, but never mentions his connection to the project. You can view the letter here.
