It is one of the toughest jobs in local government. Your council will try to support you, your family will try to support you. The problem is they don’t really know what you are going through. Sometimes you just need to talk to someone who’s been there. Someone who has gone through it.
The support sessions are very flexible. We’ll schedule monthly calls but I know that the life of a civic leader is rarely predictable. When you need to talk, you need to talk. I understand that. When we speak, we’ll discuss what is going well and what you’d like to do more of. We’ll look ahead to things that might be important or difficult. We’ll help you get a handle on what you need to focus on.
And yes, I’ll ask what isn’t going well. I won’t judge you or tell you what to do. I’ll just try to help you find your way through it because I’m only interested in supporting you.
You are supporting an entire community, let me support you.
