Oliver Porter has done the impossible. He led the movement to incorporate his town into a privately run city. Oliver gave a talk at the International Society for Individual Liberty World Conference on Market Liberalization in Bali about the town of Sandy Springs, Georgia.
Oliver was instrumental in incorporating his town of about 100,000 people, which allowed the town to privatize almost all of it’s government services. The town has outsourced it’s parks, traffic, 911, permitting department, call center, and even city hall — all run by a private company.
