Do the right thing –Steve Parker @ LCC 2013-06-11

The right thing is not letting one company take all the money to New York while putting another out of business, said a local resident at Tuesday night’s Lowndes County Commission Regular Session.

Steve Parker When you get a company like Veolia or Advanced that’s taking all the money to New York, and then they come to my house and they leave, I put garbage bags beside my can and they won’t pick it up.

And then my guy, Cary Scarborough, comes and picks up everything, and you know what else he does guys? He sprays deodorant!

My wife won’t take the garbage out because she’s afraid of the smells. But now it’s a pleasant experience, so maybe I can get her to take the garbage out.

You guys have a tough job. You inherited a difficult situation, and I respect that. But you don’t have to live with that decision. There are loopholes in every contract in America.

He asked them to let Cary Scarborough make a living for his family. He wondered how Veolia or Advanced could sue the county since the county is its client. He asked them:

I ask that you simply do the right thing and that’s give Cary Scarborough and Deep South Sanitation the right to make money and provide a living for his family.

The crowd applauded.
