Wednesday, June 25, 2008 | “Outsourcing” or “privatizing” local government functions as a means to reduce the cost of delivering that service or diminishing the liability for certain services on the city’s books ranks as one of the most horrendous cons in this city’s history!
What is so virtuous about the way private companies manage their business affairs? How many businesses go bankrupt each year or are up to their ears in debt notwithstanding the pretty and obtuse given to those arcane ruses? In a time when executive compensation is so excessive what lame-brain mayor or city official could conclude that “privatizing” will cost the city less?
My hope is that you keep pursuing this issue, in particular Mayor Sanders’ ineptness as the custodian of our city’s resources.
