Boss Godfrey even now positions himself to feed at the public trough
For those Emerald City lumpencitizens who've been wondering what our lame duck Mayor Boss Godfrey will do with himself, after the City Hall screen door slaps him on the backside following tomorrow's induction of Mike Caldwell as Ogden City's new mayor, the Standard-Examiner breaks the suspense with this morning story, reporting that "One Trick Pony Godfrey" will remain in the economic development business, as president of his own "start-up consulting firm after he leaves office Tuesday":
"private sector," Godfrey's distinction between "public" and "private" seems "fuzzy" at best, inasmuch as his business plan appears to depend heavily upon economic development, job creation and crime reduction "services," which would be logically marketed mainly toward "other communities," (besides Ogden?).
"Excited" that his new venture "will give him a chance to practice the [Big Government borrowing and spending] skills he developed while serving 12 years as [Ogden City] mayor," Boss Godfrey thus even now positions himself to feed at the public trough, along with his other "Special Friends":
Godfrey gleefully adds that "the company already has several clients, but declined to elaborate."
Yesiree, folks, we have no doubt that local public officials all across Utah will be eagerly queuing up in droves to learn how to build mountains of public debt, just like Ogden City, once the word gets out that Boss Godfrey has opened his new economic development shop.
We'll be keeping our fingers crossed that Godfrey's prospective client list will not include Mike Caldwell, of course, inasmuch as Ogden's credit card is already pretty much maxed out.
Don't let the cat get your tongues, O Gentle Ones...
