A typical day included dealing with constituency requests, reviewing upcoming issues.
I learned all about zoning, budget, personnel and the art of working in a political environment.
We had excellent management, but were all elected officials with an equal say in management.
Most of my co-workers were wonderful. Some trouble with those in the opposite party!
Lots of nights and weekend meetings all over the county. Running for re-election.
Sponsoring and passing important laws: a tree protect ordinance, founding a battered women's shelter, expanding gun restrictions, working to preserve neighborhoods.
