Saving Money & Studies

Leadership, Culture

Unacceptable Behavior, Unacceptable Job Ethics

In this MSNBC article titled “Where’s my governor?  Most aren’t hard to find” it sheds light that as public servants, a Governor’s whereabouts should be known.  I think this is a great lesson for all public servants.  The people should always know where and what they are doing.

One of my Professors in college told me “The victor writes the history!”  One of his most famous discussions was “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere” and how we in fact don’t know if Paul Revere was the one to warn the colonists at the time in question.  He could live with the fact we don’t know exactly which leg of the ride the quote came from (multiple riders on the route), but the fact that the quote of "The British are coming!" is wrong.
