Coneway helps big oil companies such as Shell and Mitchell Energy invest their money. When Nashville wooed away the Houston Oilers with a new stadium (see Pioneer Bob Corker), then-Houston mayor Bob Lanier appointed Coneway to head a ’96 task force to study the need for new sports stadiums. Coneway’s panel recommended spending $625 million on sports facilities, including a $250 million baseball park (Pioneer Pat Oxford was a cheerleader for this project). That gleam in Coneway’s eye opened up this year as the Astros’ new Enron Field (see Pioneer Ken Lay), which was financed with $180 million in tax dollars. Coneway attended one of President Clinton’s infamous fundraising coffee klatches in ’95. Ex-Gov. Ann Richards appointed him as a University of Texas regent.
