FYI.... The mayor jack may allowed another contractor to see siggers bid. In an attempt to allow the other contractor an opportunity to lower his and win the bid. This was witnessed by a member of the mayor's staff. Just prior to a trial in federal court, the judge said in an order that jack may lied and that his 'credibility' had been called into question. They settled with this contractor, had no choice. These are the facts and can be proven by reading through the deposition documents. Mayor may simply got caught and is very lucky a criminal complaint wasn't filed against him.
