In my last post titled 2 Assistants dumped, everyone happy an anonymous commenter says the following:
"We can't expect two or three people to do the work of ten people, and I applaud Roy for recognizing Alexandria is a mega-million dollar corporation in need of a strong and intelligent staff, each responsible with their own duties. I'm also glad he broke down Lamar White's and Jaqueline Whitle's jobs, because I wondered why one was a publicist and one was a public relations person. It now sounds to me both have a bunch of different responsibilities."
I agree, that further defining what the special positions created on the mayors staff are and who will hold them is important, if only to continue the transparency promised during the campaign. Frankly, this entire episode might have been avoided had there been more communication with all of the parties involved including the local media. I look forward to the day when there is more trust among the administration and the people who are charged with informing the residents of Alexandria on the use of their tax money.
Now on to the race for Louisiana governor. Could Governor Blanco run after all? I just can't help but think of the possibility. KALB-TV is in the process of setting up a gubernatorial debate and now I am inspired after watching part of last nights MSNBC democratic party debate. Wouldn't it be interesting to see Mr. Jindal and Mrs. Blanco go at it. Hillary vs. Obama Louisiana style?
