Detroit Mayor Dave Bing wants to
privatize services provided by the much-maligned Public Lighting Department.


……
John Riehl, president of AFSCME Local
207
, which represents about 20 of the 200 lighting employees, said
his union would fight an attempt to privatize. He said the city charter requires
a 60% majority of voters to support such a move.
