Reasonable discourse

Cheryl from Coney Island says:
The major negative to privatization is that whichever company ultimately takes control looks at how to make a lot of money, how to make a bigger profit for a CEO or Board of Directors and not necessarily what would be good for the community. Coney Island is a historic and iconic community. Its' residents, community organizations and business owners are passionate about the services and entertainment provided to the millions of people who visit every year. For them it's not about how much money can I make but how much fun can be provided while also making a living. There's a huge difference between making a living and making a profit for a board of directors.
