98% Think Local Government Is Boring* – Emerging Local Government Leaders Network


via 98% Think Local Government Is Boring* – Emerging Local Government Leaders Network.

From my nearly 40 years of experience in and around government, this is the absolute truth.  My wife and I were invited to a luncheon at a friends house not to long ago when our hostess made the comment to some at the table: “Steve is going to be teaching this summer in Chicago for Northwestern University.”  One of our acquaintances at the table promptly asked: “What are you teaching, Business?”  No, I responded, “A graduate course in public administration.”  Her response, was a sarcastic yawn.  This is from a Kindergarten teacher.  Those of us in the public service still have a lot of work to do.  In this instance, this teacher seems to forget that she is in the public service also.
