2011 Performance Evaluations

by lewwaters

By Professor Robert Dean

Eric H: Mr., Mayor, Council, as 2011 draws to a close I thought this might be an opportune time to present you with the 2011 Performance Evaluations for each of our key staff – along with a request for a modest 3.5% pay raise for each of them. Time constraints prevent me from detailing each one and so I’ve condensed everyone’s evaluation into the one – City Consigliere. As you know, the Consigliere is ultimately responsible for all advice, from all departments that reaches the desks of the Mayor and Council.

The Consigliere’s duties are codified in Washington State Court Rules relating to the Rules of Professional Conduct for lawyers.

RPC RULE 2.1
ADVISOR
In representing a client, a lawyer shall exercise independent professional judgment and render candid advice. In rendering advice, a lawyer may refer not only to law but to other considerations such as moral, economic, social and political factors that may be relevant to the client’s situation.

Thanks For The Memories

by lewwaters

Like many, I grew up in the early days of television and enjoyed seeing Bob Hope entertaining our Troops every Christmas. I wasn’t fortunate enough to be able to attend either of the shows during my two Christmas’ in Vietnam, but continued to enjoy seeing them when televised over the years.

We could sure use more celebrities like Bob Hope.

Thanks for the memories, Bob.

You will never be forgotten.
