“If we look at every department that hasn’t been properly managed, we probably would be getting rid of every department in this city,” Jones said.
Yes Councilwoman Jones, you should be getting rid of every department in the city. As you yourself just finally acknowledged, the corruption and incompetence in the city runs deep and is pervasive.
