Paging All Newly Elected Municipal Officials

I too will be going to hell the Newly Elected Municipal Official Institute in Athens this weekend. We will all be suffering through it together. From what multiple attendees have told me, being water boarded while being sodomized by a rabid porcupine would be a more pleasant experience. We will see.

Nonetheless, the state commands that we be there with *cough* or without the flu — no excuses. I shall try not to infect you all, but again, that might be more pleasant than the lectures from what I’ve been told. In any event, I’ll be the near comatose guy in the back of the room trying not to cough my lungs up.

    Erick,

    While I will admit that some of the lectures can be boring, I think that you will find the staff at the CVIOG at UGA do an excellent job. I went a few years ago to the Newly Elected County Commissioner’s training and learned a great deal.

    If nothing else, it served as a reminder to some of those who attended that, yes, there are limits to your power!

    You promised not to tell anyone about that.

    Blue,

    And the other “fun” feature is you begin to “alumni” and identify with others common to you, those elected in the same cycle you were.

    When you get to your first ACCG or Municipal Assoc. meeting, these are the folks you will always identify with in that sea of people.

    The friends you meet at newly elected officials will introduce you to the others on their board and government offices.

    Always go open minded, and usually you will learn something from some classes, as well as find out things from your peers there as most problems with government are not isolated to one area.

    And guess what, if you play your cards right, attend the seminars and pass your test, soon you can be a ………….certified sumb bytch……lol.

    that is all.
