A case for Public Private Competition
Original post made by vanguard, Menlo Park: other, on Apr 28, 2010
I have spoken to Mr. Stogner about the prospect of requiring the County agencies to competitively bid for work that is currently assigned to them as a requirement for receiving continued funidng.
Mr. Stogner is one of the few, if not the only candidate for County Supervisor who has heard my plea.
There are many tasks that could be performed far more efficiently by the private sector, financial accounting, facilities maintenance and building security just to name three.
I would urge my fellow voters to inquire of all candidates for County Supervisor what their plans are for imposing the discipline of the marketplace on the County.
We all know that monopolies are slow to evolve and subject to extinction if given the opportunity.
