Here's what I was referring to

Nagin is piling as much cash into Ciber as he can before he leaves office.

You'll also be happy to know that your tax dollars are working hard to pay $30,000 of legal defense expenses against the Times Picayune and Lee Zurik (WWL) for our mayor.




Doesn't that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy?

I don't get some of this.

If it's the same Ciber it's a pretty big company. A NYSE listed public corporation with 8500 employees in 85 offices and annual revenue of over 1 billion dollars.

- Does Ciber do work on our elections?

- What exactly are we getting for $6 million from Ciber?

- That's a pretty remarkable coincidence in timing with the LTC incidents and the canning of Anthony Jones, no?

- What are we getting for $10+ million out of VisionIT out of Detroit?

- What is the point of Nagin doing this? We don't get fair value for the contract (can't be) so what is he getting?

- Why does the same person turn up as a witness in these contracts?

- And who is that law firm?

Ms. Clarke has an interesting specialty:

"In the course of representing clients in contentious, large-scale litigation, Ms. Clarke has developed an expertise in the procedural rules and various intricate discovery issues related to Electronically Stored Information (ESI)."

Just another side note, that legal contract with Beveridge & Diamond was executed the same day the transparency ordinance was passed, February 5th.

For 46 mill. we could fix City Hall and have some change. Exactly what did we get from Ciber? Just the "fix" of the expensive crime cameras?
