Consultant: New Orleans City Hall 'dysfunctional'
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A consultant's report delivered this week to Mayor Mitch Landrieu notes many, long-standing problems with the city's government, including needless red tape, staffing shortages and the lingering effects of past mismanagement and corruption.
"I just haven't run into this level of dysfunction before, and I've been doing this work for almost 25 years," David Osborne, who served as a senior adviser to then-Vice President Al Gore's National Performance Review initiative, said in The Times-Picayune. (hahahaha!, Welcome to Lousiana )
Osborne, of the Massachusetts-based Public Strategies Group, notes several problems already identified by Landrieu, who took office last spring.
Those problems include decades-old computer systems and various civil service rules.
Not that I think anyone who was a senior advisor to Al Gore is qualified consultant, I just think it's funny someone finally said New Orleans city government is dysfunctional. Good luck working that out Mitch.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

That is about as surprising as the news story of how crime has risen in NJ since all the officers were laid off. Who would have thought that crime would go up?"An Unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it." Jeff Cooper
