There are more than a few proposals for 'better' planning, development, hiring processes, and so on...Is idealism a residual effect of being youthful or can 'lofty' and 'grandiose' visions succeed? While I agree that venting is sometimes beneficial, where is the pro-activity? Are there no managers, directors, etc. with similar ideals of betterment, advocacy, etc.? Are those who speak of the system as corrupt, depletive, etc. so far removed from each other that strength in coalition cannot occur? My vision is to get into a small to medium-size growing, acceptably budgeted town, move up the ranks, draw my 'friends' into other offices (political, legal, development, etc.) and then take over the whole place...then, maybe, something 'better' can work....any takers?
