Newark’s Water Crisis is As Much about Lack of Vision and Courage As It Is About Mismanagement and Malfeasance

Everyone knows it has always been a coveted desire to privatize Newark’s Water Department. The money such an agency would generate would be massive and would invite corruption. If you don’t believe me just look at what happened under the Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corporation.
