If you don’t read the LA Times, you probably missed this article on what it takes to staff Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Quick summary: a lot.
As you’ll read in the article, staffers assigned to the mayor must always have Listerine “Breath Strips,” Sharpies and index cards at the ready as they stand “within the mayor’s line of sight [at all times].” It’s an interesting read in what it takes to staff a “celebrity” mayor.
I can assure you that staffing our celebrity mayor is no where near as traumatic. As long as he can access a hot cup of coffee, the world is a happy place.
