David Clarke wants to save about $1.5 million by privatizing jail medical services.
There's some guy who "oversees" jail conditions; he doesn't like the idea.
...Clarke should hold off formally awarding the jail medical contract until Shansky has had a chance to more thoroughly review a private firm's proposal and current conditions at the jail, Shansky said.
Maybe 'reviewing current conditions' and 'reviewing the proposal' --that's what you're paid to do, right?--should precede yapping about "radical", "completely inappropriate" and "disastrous."
But hey, we smell the green thick odor of...............AFSCME-BREATH!!
...The contract would cover medical services at both the jail and the County Correctional Facility-South in Franklin. If the medical care at the jail is privatized, about 110 county nurses, doctors, social workers and administrators would lose their jobs....
Just a co-incidence, I'm sure.
