Day 342: Dave Kanner

13 Mar

A few weeks ago, the city of Ashland officially welcomed Dave Kanner to the position of City Administrator.  Dave most recently worked as the County Administrator in Deschutes County.  Mayor Stromberg said this about Dave,“His collaborative management style, years of experience in public administration, and technical expertise, will benefit our community for years to come.”

Dave is in a new community and his family is still back home where he used to live.  When I thought about that, I imagined that he might feel a bit out of his element… and that a pie of some kind might make him feel more at home.

Today I brought a Spinach, Pepper, Onion, and Cheddar Quiche to Dave Kanner to welcome him to our fair city. I hope that he feels that he is exactly where he should be.  I don’t expect his job to be easy, and I can’t imagine what it must be like to tackle it, but I do want him to know how much we appreciate his effort and dedication on our behalf.

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.

    What a good and gracious idea, Karen! I too wish Dave the very best in his work with the City and all of us!

    That “pie” alone made the move worthwhile!
