Thursday I will forward to City Council the proposal from the former Ogdensburg manager to help give structure to the Council's search for a new manager in Watertown.
John Krol outlined the issues in such a search at a meeting with on Tuesday and promised to prepare a more formal outline for Council to ponder.
I sent an email to the Kellie Greene campaign today formally offering her a guest spot on an entire HOTLINE show next week.
I noticed on her FACEBOOK page a photo of her with Maricopa (AZ) County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. There were also pictures of her at the recent Chili Cook Off in Watertown. I would lose the AZ references as while rubbing shoulder with big pols there is interesting, it also allows the carpetbagger charge to flourish.
An interesting function of human nature is that crows and not taxes, spending or managers, seems to be the issue that is capturing the public's attention.
On radio, that's what the calls are about and in person I get more comments on crows than anything. Like every upstate city, efforts have been focused on hazing, but the public fascination with crows may explain why 'hang 'em high' rhetoric has some traction.
