A reader sent us this excerpt from the IDAHO BUSINESS REVIEW regarding a new hire in the office of Mayor Lauren McLean
We don’t know if the weekly paper wrote the story or if the text came from a City of Boise press release, but it is one of the better examples of obfuscation we have seen.
“Jillana Finnegan has been named the strategic initiatives director by Mayor Lauren McLean. As director of programs for Boise State University’s College of Innovation and Design, she provided direction and support for new programs, increased student employability and broke down institutional silos that stood in the way of progress. In her role as strategic initiatives director, she will lead the efforts to support strategic priorities and work with project leaders to create infrastructure.”
Which leads the GUARDIAN to ponder:
–What is an institutional silo?
–What is a strategic initiative?
–What is a strategic priority?
–How do project leaders create infrastructure?
She will no doubt be well paid to provide these services to the citizens of Boise who apparently need to have their strategic initiatives directed.
