Trash Talk: Mayor Recommends Richard's Disposal

 Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba recommends Richard's Disposal of New Orleans gets the new garbage contract.  The agenda for today's meeting of the City Council states: 

The Mayor rebid the garbage contract after the City Council rejected his recommendation of FCC Connect six months last fall. Oddly enough, Richard's Disposal scored last among the three proposers at the time.  

Oddly enough, there is nothing related to the garbage contract or Richard's Disposal in the board packet that was posted online this morning.  The Mayor is apparently playing very close to the vest on this one.

It would seem that Waste Disposa'sl palm-grease was insufficient, right?

Something is fishy said...

What’s wrong with Waste Management? That is clearly the only service provided in Jackson that works well. And I thought he wanted to fire WM to go with a local company and now it’s a company from Nola?? This is fraud in the making

flying drone garbage removal?

I’m sorry but one thing that is reliable and consistent as a resident of Jackson is Waste Management’s services. I don’t understand why we can’t just renew our contract with them and move on. Oh, wait it’s probably one of his buddies and he’s getting a nice little kickback. It’s like Siemens all over again new boss same as the old boss. Would that mean we’d all have to fork out whatever the cost is for one of those big ass blue trash cans?

If it ain't broke, please don't fix it.

As others said, pretty much the only city service that actually functions as intended is Waste Management, so we better make sure to mess that up too. This place is a joke, because our mayor is a joke.

Funny, I see where New Orleans is rebidding their garbage deal currently.... Hmmmmm

Seems Richards is capable and apparently better than "Metro" and meets a primary requirement for the Mayor of Jackson

"Former (New Orleans) Mayor Ray Nagin shaped that system, heralding the contracts – which together are worth between $20 million and $25 million annually – as the most lucrative in the city’s history for minority-owned firms."

The mayor of Jackson is engaging in corruption in broad daylight.

They can't even handle NOLA, much less a different city.

Who thought THIS was a good idea? Oh, yeah, Chuckles the Clown.

Looks Chock Full of Nuts got some campaign money from a Néw Orleans garbage company. Since Jackson folks are voting for mainly black folks Chock Full can apply this to a congressional race. Happy MLK day You'all!

Put that story in context. That took place right after Ida when the city was overwhelmed with garbage, power outages, and other problems related to the disaster.

Let me go on record by saying when, not if, the mayor changes from Waste Management to some brother in law type deal to change the garbage handling in Jackson, it will go downhill quickly, just like the Siemens deal. Mark my word. And Mayor, I know you and your minions read this blog, everyone will be pointing and laughing at you, again.

Trash talkin' said...

Leave it to Chowke to go "Dicking around" with something that actually worked. Perhaps a protest at City Hall is in order with signs that read:

Don't do

New Orleans certainly is a model that every city everywhere would want to emulate.

"The Incredible Dr. Pol" on the National Geographic channel is an adequate comparison for Lumumba's approach to governing. There's no telling what Dr. Pol will pull out of an animal's rear end. Similarly, the mayor seems to pull one stinking idea after another from his own rear end to see if any can somehow survive, no matter how much feces are present.

Look up the Stan Pampee Barre scandal. Alvin Richard’s fingerprints are all over it. After that, he began working with Ray Nagin along with Metro on New Orleans contracts.

Aww, now 2:55 --- just because Richards and his partner Woods gave $10 grand bribe to get a little school board trash hauling contract, passing it through the Stan Barre NOLA political bank accounts, shouldn't lead one to believe that those fine upstanding businessmen (who can't 'remember' who their business partners are) would be the type that would be offering a bribe to move from last to first for this contract, now would you?

I am in possession of a photo of Fred Sanford's pick-em-up truck with Richard's Garbage Disposal logo on the driver's side door. Two brooms and a shelvel rest in an upright PVC pipe in the cargo-bed. Kingfish won't allow the posting of pictures. I'll see if Maggie can use it.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
