Glass served as president of the Marion County Capital Improvement Board where he led successful negotiations to keep the Colts in Indianapolis, regularly host NCAA Final Fours, develop Lucas Oil Stadium, and dramatically expand the Indiana Convention Center. He also led the effort for Indianapolis to host the Super Bowl, laying the groundwork for its successful 2012 bid. Read the article here (subscription required).
