The last paragraph of the previous post wasn't intended to imply collusion between the mayor and Entergy. But Dan Packer served as co-chair of Nagin's first transition team, served on Nagin's BNOB committee and was Nagin's appointment to head the aviation board. Obviously, the mayor has a great deal of trust in the head of Entergy New Orleans. Under the circumstances, one would hope the city council is prepared to be a little more skeptical about Entergy's claims than the mayor might be. To rephrase that, the council should not wait for the mayor to provide leadership on the issue.
