    That $27 million deal the City made with Johnson Controls is brilliant!! Of course the new equipment will never deliver the promised energy and cost savings because it will never be operated or maintained correctly. Ask Eric Garrett, the Metro employee who was suspended indefinitely for reporting said issue.

    And did Fischer really mention sewers as one of the reasons for the one cent sales tax? And the tax will go away just as soon all the voters get everything they deserve.
