Warren Kulo's play by play is a joke for credible journalism. The Mayor voted to break the tie to continue on the path of privatization before Mr. McDonnell asked the employees if they wanted this, The employees made it very clear how they felt and a revote was taken. Thank you for not caving in to the wishes of the Mayor to put 40 employees at risk of losing their jobs so the Mayor can get rid of Andre' Kaufman and spend what little bit of savings that may or may not result from eliminating one of the best departments in the city. I wish we could privatize the Mayors office while she is in it.

They need to privatize this department because a private entity will employ those who want to work and get rid of those who do not need to be there like Andre Fm Kaufman and his clone Johnny Guru. These guys have done tremendous damage to the image Ocean Springs is trying to build. When is enough going to be enough? I was there also. Get some guts aldermen.

LOL why do they need to privatize it? What will that do besides make one of Connie's friends wh o owns a water company rich? Kaufman sounds like a good old boy but hell -- would those people rather keep their jobs as public employees WITH PENSIONS AND STATE MUNICIPAL WORKER PROTECTIONS or would they rather be like you? A free market idiot dangling in the wind of workers?

Privatization? I'm a Democrat & they need to kick Connie out of the state party if she's going to run like that. She's not a liberal or a pro-union type.

Gulf,I hate to inform you but the reason Pascagoula, Gautier, Gulfport and others privatize is to save taxpayers money. Private companies operate more efficiently and for less. This is the biggest problem with this country democrats like yourself want to grow the government not the economy. We all know from your previous posts you are a union loving socialist. Great thing about this free market country is you can be.

Why is socialism a bad thing? You don't like Social Security or medicaid or medicare or food stamps or TANF if you fall thru the cracks?

Canada actually has median real estate prices & median incomes that are HIGHER than ours. They also have socialized medicine in Australia, Japan, & Germany, to name a few places & all those nations have higher growth rates & more per capita wealth than we do.

When i say socialism I mean make us more like Australia or Japan or Sweden or Norway -- I'm not saying make us like Cuba like the stupid stereotypes go.

Most people in those nations I mentioned LIVE BETTER THAN THE WORKING CLASS HERE DO. If you knew what you were talking about you'd know that. I don't even think of that as "socialism" -- its just a moniker idiots like Sean Hannity make up.

As for contractors doing things cheaper than govt entities -- usually speaking the savings last for a few yrs & then the contractors who take over utilities start jacking up rates because they get bought out by people like you who demand higher profits.....

Look @ the defense contractors & how they charge 80 dollars for a 5 dollar hammer....

Or how hospitals charge Medicaid 500 dollars for a 10 dollar bed sheet....real savings there....
