Just when you think Chicago had enough of a Police Superintendent drinking on the job, Chicago Commissioner of the Department of Water Management keeps in the act. According to a source at Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office, Conner was excused from a hit and run because he is black. The source said, “the black community having a drink or two and leaving the scene of a minor crime is what we do”? (insert a record scratch) I was dumbstruck by this answer. Just recently, Commissioner Conner was at a budget meeting and his actions were called out by Chicago’s most powerful black alderman, David Moore. I am glad to see that a Chicago Alderman keeps high standards for all employees despite color.
This is what we expected from Lori Lightfoot and her wife Amy ‘Bigfoot” Eshleman. Chicago voted for change and Chicago employees represent the same bunch of Rahm’s leftovers.
Currently, at the Eugene Sawyer Water Purification Plant, a story we published regarding a mess in the entrance area has got worse. We told you, with need all underground inspections, licensed and certified personnel to handle the major leaks. I as a Licensed Certified Plumbing Inspector and Investigator and P.E. offered to pinpoint the problem. Now, the Department of Water Management has the South District Plumbers on the scene. Also, major heavy equipment such as breakers and backhoes are going to have to try to find the leak. Stupid.
We told you this work needed to be completed immediately long ago because the water main pictured is up in the air. According to Commissioner Conner, winter came much too soon this year. The entire leadership at the Department is a laugh at all major municipal water management institutions. One guy from New York told me, “Chicago needs to remove the political insiders and hire pros”. Chicago is the new Detroit and the lack of structural maintenance is a national joke.
Right now, the Chicago Department of Water Management personnel at the Eugene Sawyer are evacuating their bowels into outhouses and drinking bottled water shipped in from taxpayer’s reserves. Some black customers wanted this water for those drinking bottled water due to the lead epidemic in Chicago.
Could you imagine another billion-dollar enterprise having employees going to the bathroom in outhouses in the middle of winter and drinking bottled water? Please note, Commissioner Conner is still refusing to release FOIA I have requested to expose this freakshow. Scam central.
We already warned everyone, when the political hacks at the DOWM forced Katherine Ealy, the best Chief engineer in the history of the DOWM out, hell would return. It is here.
