I've been eating too much junk.
It isn't going away.
Some positions have opened up on committees in the League of California cities. I have let them know I am interested in being on one of these committees. I don't know why! I think for the experience, to share my own planning experience and thoughts. They meet three or four times a year. Could be interesting.
I have just been appointed to the Transportation, Communications, and Public Works policy committee of the League. What I do not know yet is whether they pay transportation and lodging expenses for the three meetings a year. If not, I can manage it, but it would make life easier if they do pay. How weird this is. But - looks good on the resume...
