That is silly. No one is saying he doesn't have a license, we are saying he has NO experience with sewer and water. He can't train the employees as he knows less than they do.
He's getting a lot of money. He should be figuring out how to connect the customers to the water. They shouldn't be out looking for hydrants.
Where are you getting your information ? My understanding is that he has the necessary state licences required for the position.
