I always wondered what a mayor does. Now I know....they have their picture taken. Every holiday, every "cause" is another photo opportunity.

Here's another cause she supports.

Mayor Sue Murray signed a proclamation recently making April 11 through 17 the Week of the Young Child.


She has had a busy April.

A Mayor most often only signs proclamations when approached, (s)he does not usually initiate the process. Unfortunately, ExHoosier, you missed the point: the purpose of an agency asking for a proclamation is to increase public awareness of the issue at hand. The picture of the signing is just one way to do this.

Does Putnam County's mental health really need a proclomation to increase public awareness? I mean most of us do read the BG and it's reader's comments on a daily basis.

I personally enjoyed her faux pas photo op proclaiming "LWV Making Democracy Work Week" when she urged "all Greencastle residents to pay tribute and respect to the league of Woman Voters as for all they do to make our community healthy, vibrant and strong." One would think a politician would do a quick check of "health, vibrancy and strength" before shouldering someone with the blame.

cll....I didn't miss the point. Did you miss the sarcasm?

My point...I'm waiting for her to "do" something so that I can read about it in the BG.

Thanks for clearing that up for me, cll, that it wasn't her idea.
