Citizen of the Week

Thursday, September 27, 2012

This week's Citizen of the Week is one of the many apparently tireless citizens who volunteers her time with the city. Beverly Blankenship is chairwoman of the Planning Commission, that group which works to make sense of our labrynthine city codes, a thankless and unexciting job. But Blankenship goes beyond that. She has to deal with City Council. "I've watched their meetings for years," says her nominator. "She liaisons between a polite, organized group of people and a flaming clown circus from outer space. She is to be commended for that alone, but she's actually getting stuff done too, which is more than can be said for some." Thanks Beverly!
