A hand-painted sign on Padgett Switch Road, near the Bayou La Batre city limits, calls mayor Stan Wright a "betrayer" for his decision to partner with BP in the operation of the Vessels of Opportunity Program. More than 500 people gathered at the city docks July 2, 2010 to protest the move, saying they fear the mayor's involvement will result in favoritism and pay cuts. Under the VOO program, local boaters and fisherman have been hired by BP to protect vulnerable areas from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
