Resignation of Bo Kemp as Executive Director of Gary Economic Development Corporation

This petition had 50 supporters


The sooner Bo Kemp leaves the city of Gary, the better off its residents will be. Bo Kemp signed an MOU with GEO group back Sept. 2015. His vision and track record continues to significantly harm the citizens and the future of the city. I for one am prepared to call for his resignation. (Like this message if you agree).

He has drawn more than a $180,000/year salary from the city of Gary (Gary sanitary district + Gary Economic Development Corp. + other consulting services rendered to Mayor Freeman-Wilson)

He doesn't live in the city and spends only a few days a week at work.

He has worked to privatize Gary's trash collection, causing a number of residents to loose once stable jobs.

He is largely responsible for privatizing the management of the Gary airport.

Under his and the mayor's leadership they doubled dealed the public purchase and renovation of the 504 Broadway building to a private developer and now are having city agencies pay $15/per sq foot to lease space there?!?NO  Bo Kemp needs to go.

NO MORE PRIVATIZATION OF PUBLIC GOODS AND SERVICES IN GARY, IN!          

NO MORE BLACK MISLEADERSHIP CLASS in GARY, IN!

WE WILL NO LONGER HAND OUR PUBLIC DOLLARS OVER TO SELF-INTERESTED CONSULTANTS AND CORPORATIONS!
