A Post-Conventions Reflection: Contrasts Between Candidates and the People

Source: Scott Paine
Now that the conventions are over and the City of Philadelphia is busy cleaning up after the Democratic Party (as the City of Cleveland had to last week after the Republican Party), it might be worthwhile to consider the epic contest for the presidency in terms of contrasts. But for the moment, let’s not consider contrasts between the two parties’ standard bearers. Let’s consider the contrasts between them and the American public.
To note contrasts is not necessarily to criticize. Some of the contrasts I’m about to lay out are what one would expect, given that we are talking about a competition for the highest elected office in the country. Those who now stand close to that responsibility are likely to be distinctive in some ways from the public they seek to lead and serve.
At the same time, these contrasts are worth remembering. Our life experiences frequently define our understanding of the nature of life and its struggles.

Thought about RMPE?

Thought about RMPE?

As I wrap up our first online meeting for the League’s Risk Management for Public Entities (RMPE) study group, I would be remiss if I did not let everyone know of this group, once again, and how it can help you obtain your RMPE certification.
