Daily Thoughts 12/22/2012

This morning, I checked the Facebook and Twitter for the library.  I also spent a little time reading Management Basics for Information Professionals.  Right now, I am reading about leadership.  There is a reminder to understand technical and management jargon for libraries as well as read library literature.

I have been following the local papers.  This article very much gives the feel of last nights meeting.
Mount Vernon Residents Angry Over New Proposed Tax Hike.  I was sitting and listening in the front of City Council Chambers with my colleagues.

This is another article from Mount Vernon Daily Voice, Mount Vernon Library Warns About Impact of Budget Cuts.

Final Public Hearing on the Budget
I left at 9:30 p.m. on Friday after the public portion of the hearing.  The description is apt from the Mount Vernon Inquirer.
