Bellosguardo Foundation is registered with political consultant as president

The Bellosguardo Foundation, which will inherit Huguette Clark's $85 million oceanfront property in Santa Barbara, has been incorporated in New York as a nonprofit. The president of the foundation is Jeremy Lindaman, the political consultant to Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider. Here's a link to the incorporation listing in New York. The mayor recently nominated the first board of directors for the foundation; members are then approved by the attorney general of the state of New York, also as agreed in the settlement. (So it's a New York charity with its only asset in California.) FYI, the list of directors is in this previous post. The settlement agreement named three ex officio members: a representative of the Clark relatives, a representative of the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and a representative of Huguette's longtime attorney in Santa Barbara.
