City Light copper theft: Stop throwing money at the problem

The article “City Light leader fell for ‘Indian’ copper con” made me wonder:  If the citizens of Seattle cannot entrust Seattle City Light Superintendent Jorge Carrasco to keep 20 tons of copper safe, how are we to believe he is keeping secure billions of dollars worth of dams?  For this the mayor is planing on giving him a $60,000 raise?

The article stressed how procedures for low-level employees were thoroughly reviewed and overhauled following the copper theft.  As a former City Light employee, I can assure you that a much better, cheaper and more efficient “lesson” for all is to go right for the root of the problem:  Instead of throwing good money after bad at the management level, it’s high time our elected officials finally replaced those sorry individuals with ones more interested in promoting the interests of Seattle citizenry than ripping them off. By doing so, rate-payers get better service and save money on top of it.
