Workplace of both fun and pain
Executive & Special Assistant (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – February 10, 2015
Working in a political office can be both fun and painful at the same time.
Fun tended to be when left alone to develop unique advertising for the Councillor as well as developing policy positions to be used both in Council as well as in Committees.
The less enjoyable was the 100+ emails and phone calls from residents of the ward, members of the public service, and other individuals received on a daily basis. All of these contacts have to be responded to in a timely and intelligent manner, regardless of how intelligent or personality challenged they may be.
Other work involved maintaining the Councillor's website, keeping the office clean, and keeping the Councillor out of trouble.
