Privatization of services is a growing trend in today's government. But, what factors should be identified when considering privatizing departments or functions? What policy issues should be considered in connection with transferring these departments/functions to a company within the private sector?
The League of Women Voters is currently undertaking a study of privatization to examine these issues as well addressing the community impact and strategies to ensure transparency and accountability.
Join the League as they host this community forum, which features panelists: 1st Ward Ann Arbor City Council Member - Sabra Briere; Former Washtenaw County Administrator - Bob Guenzel; Ann Arbor Public School Board Member - Susan Baskett; and Lois Richardson who serves as mayor pro tem of the city of Ypsilanti and is in her third term on the city council.
This event is cosponsored by the Ann Arbor Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc.
