I'm trying to get confirmation through a statement made on this matter, but someone stated that this woman as a master plumber lost her license in New York.


Not so much for being incoherent, but for selling her license in such a way to profit off the work by the unlicensed working under her permitted work.

When a license holder has to tell you that they are female, then I think they automatically disqualify themselves for doing work for being retarded.

Unless you look like KD Lang, I can pretty much guess that you are female, not that it matters anyway. Just tell me that you are licensed or not. Don't try to get all warm and fuzzy because you chose a non traditional profession because you could pass home economics.:laughing:

Seriously, I don't care if you're one in a million, don't state your rarity as if it's an asset. We have a female inspector that's a licensed master electrician. She proudly espoused her credentials saying that yes she "is a woman, but she is also a licensed master electrician" when doing a PLUMBING inspection. I told her she was on the wrong job, but she said she was "cross trained" to inspect plumbing.

As to the original question, I believe that if you pimp your license, then you forfeit your license as you have injured the trust of the license.

I think the female plumber was a dumb azz for pimping out her license.
I also think the judge has had a bad experience with a plumber and wanted to get even.

I was entertained by the judge grilling the female master licensed plumber. By the way, if some female is a 'master', doesn't that make her a mistress?....:blink:

Or is she a 'mastress'? Or a 'masterette'?

Anyone who pimps out there license needs to have their license imeadiatly revoked and be fined, and be put in jail. Just my outlook on things.

She did loose her license, usually they let you surrender your license (when you mess up) hers was revoked, she is an idiot! All work must be performed by employees you can't have someone's hack do the work under your permit.
A can't even count how many jobs I've turned down because the customer wants me to sign off while his guys do the job.

Nobody working for me needs a license they do need to work for me under my direct and constant supervision (which extends to the third person)

She was a dumb azzzz , from what I was told there is only less than 5 women in NYC that are Master PLumbers , it is a idiot like that who makes it so hard for hard working guys trying to do the right thing get their chops broken by the D.O.B
She was know for being one of the biggest hacks who would sign anyone off. Good for her , she was never a real plumber , she got all her time working as a book keeper.

I've jammed with KD Lang and her band of misfits -- She's Hell on wheels with an open mic and a 12 string.:yes:

That Woman has both my admiration and my respect.

Lemme visit my favorite site with my jar of jelly and get back with ya on that one. :laughing: :blink:


I was looking for female plumbers on youtube, for a totally different reason than anyone else would think, and happened to find the two videos about this plumber.


Only reason I posted was the bizarre actions this woman portrayed, like she be huffing oatey cleaner under a sink for 8 hours... but then again PVC isn't legal in NYC.

But when she stood at the opposite side of the podium... that was a first I'm sure. Hurts to watch.

Was/is her name Elaine Ward of Isis plumbing?

Question: how did she pass the practical if she mainly did bookkeeping? From what you New Yorkers tell me about the NYC master's exam, it's the triple offset in copper that would be difficult for a non-plumber. Maybe her dad was a plumber. With license revocation, does the person have the option of re-applying down the road?
Yes Ward,
I think she was a ligit union plumber
Truth is with practice and luck anyone can pass, but I believe in her time she would have wiped a lead joint.
No she will never be able to get her license, fitness of character alone!

I think the purpose of highlighting the fact she is a female master plumber comes into play when bidding jobs that are geared toward having a certain percentage of minority bids. Any female contractor is a minority, and as such gets an inside lane on the bidding process. The whoring-out of the license is a whole other issue.
