Ben has done a wonderful job as Mayor Shinn. What the audience doesn’t know is that this scene is complicated by the fact that the school board members have handed Ben a note (suppose to report that they will NOT perform a patriotic tableau) that actually says “I Love You”. Ben said it was difficult not to crack up laughing when they did this.
Work was good today. I’m learning more with each passing hour. I expect I will have the opportunity to actually begin performing my duties soon. There are still several items of training that remain before I can become fully engaged in the job.
