Mayor's pal may get $8M deal ...

... "to ensure the orderly transition of responsibility." ?!?!?!?!

While some water and environmental activists charge that calls for 'free water' will lead to the takeover of Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (ignoring the fact the the proposed Water Affordability Plan doesn't call for 'free water') this article gives us a better idea of the problems in DWSD. Overpaid administrators with ridiculous golden parachute contracts and overpriced contracts with a friend of the Mayor who happens to be sitting in jail.

I wonder if the $8 million dollar contract has any relationship to the $46,000 contribution to the Mayors campaign that the state is investigating?

What do you think?
