In my last blog, I wrote about how varied the work of a Linn County Supervisor can be. From secondary roads to jail cells (and everything in between), our responsibilities are incredibly wide ranging. Each workday brings new opportunities and challenges.
I realize it’s one thing to say that, but quite another to live it. So I decided to chronicle many of the meetings and issues that have filled a recent eight-day stretch on the job. It gives you a very brief glimpse into the wide and wonderful world of being a county supervisor:
Toss in four board meetings, seven updates from department heads, two interviews with the media and consideration of 11 economic development grants, and it’s one fascinating job. I truly love it.
Now – if I can only get that annoying coffee machine in my office to work!
