I was pleased to see the letter to the editor from Patty
Denson. She is correct in her statement about water and sewer rates escalating
when these services are privatized. It is documented many times.
Patty also says the private utility company that is chosen
to take over the Sunnyside operations may be from out of state, and that's
true. A lot of these private utility companies are also from France. Remember
France? They are the ones who helped us so much in Iraq. One Sunnyside
councilman remembers them, just look at the back window of his pick-up. Nice
Stand up Sunnyside and tell your employees (the city
council) once and for all, NO PRIVATIZATION!
