“You’re in the center of the American democratic system and process. Whether you like it or not, you’re right there, you become the focal point. There’s never a dull moment. Every day is different.

And there are those of us that are working behind the scenes to ensure that this system of democracy that people take for granted works smoothly day in and day out.” – Scott Mitnick, City Manager of Thousand Oaks.
