Looking for a job as a war correspondent and don’t want to visit Iraq? We have a tip for the guy or gal seeking danger, excitement and the thrill of combat.
The Ada County Commissioners are looking for a full-time public relations person to make friends with the community and the media.
The job posting offers $50,000 to $60,000 annually plus bennies. It doesn’t say if the bennies include official visits to Hawaii, but it is worth asking.
The duties are a treasure trove for stand up comedians and bloggers:
–You will have to serve as the “primary point of contact for media inquiries.” Point of contact” may mean DART BOARD!
–Establish working relationships with media reps….like explain why they got locked out of a meeting the chairman says they didn’t need to be locked out of.
–Get this! They want to PAY someone to “keep the commissioners informed of potential controversies.” We know a bunch of citizens who would offer that service absolutely FREE.
–One of the duties will obviously give the new employee a full time relationship with Sharon Ullman because they will have to respond to public “information requests.”
–Oh yeah. You serve at the pleasure of the county commissioners and there currently IS a vacancy.
