Do I like my job???
As you can imagine, during the first year on the job, the most common question I get asked is if I like my job. To answer I have to sum up this week by saying...where else can you get "attacked" by a dog one day, get to be filmed for a TV commercial the next day and get help to honor success in our community both by celebrating the work of our City staff and by thanking longstanding business owners who continue to invest in our community. I truly believe I am blessed to have one of the greatest jobs there is. As I come close to rounding out year one next month, I cannot wait to see what year two has in store!
Thank you to the Lakeville PD K-9 unit for the demonstration, and apparent initiation ritual!, at the Ambassador picnic.
Watch KSTP and KSTC this fall for the Hertaus Floors commercial! Yes, yes, I will sign autographs.
Congrats Dave and Kati! thanks for letting me crash your photo!
