Thank goodness for the draught or we might never have known of the new Water Superintendent. The newly appointed head of one of the city's key departments appeared in the context of a story on high water usage.
Recently I asked why the hire was not considered newsworthy and a respected reporter said it's just not and people will get to see Vickie Murphy if a news story comes along about the Water Department.
The water czar oversees water treatment and distribution along with sewage treatment and hydroelectric production.
Its not like hiring a clerk/typist, but I grew up in the Bob Tompkins/Joe Rich era of news. I'd even like to see the anchors wearing leisure suits again.
