Wanted: a new way to spend your taxpayer dollars

The DWP is looking for a lactation specialist. You read that right -- someone to help new mothers who work for the utility learn to feed their babies.

The RFP alone (request for proposal, for those of you lucky enough to have never sat through a government meeting) runs 56 pages. Yep, you read that right again. Fifty six pages for a want ad for someone to teach women how to use a breast pump.

Our city hall reporter, David Zahniser, is on the story.
