There are some things to like about working here.

Personally, I have a good job in that I manage my own work, decide what to do when, within reasonable limits. I also don't get interrupted much.

More broadly, I like that Carolyn is so thoughtful and giving. She is spearheading a move to collect money from the rest of us (and herself) to get a redwood tree planted near a park where Mike's father lived - Mike is a planner here, and his father died at the end of last year from cancer - with a memorial plaque in his honor. I love this kind of tribute.

And she also headed up the department's collection of food for the food bank to the astonishing tune of something like 3,000 food items. We really outdid ourselves and the food bank is never going to forget that the city of PB employees contributed over 1,000 pounds of food in December.

And she cares about the employees here, tries to get them to the top of the scale, to reasonable rates. She has gone to bat for me and others, even when we haven't tried to upgrade our pay ourselves.

Carolyn is really why I work here.
