Well, today has been a very busy day. We started off the day with several different things that we knew we needed to get done for the day. This included writing a piece of legislation as well as working together with the counties and cities in order to make sure that those with mental retardation and developmental disabilities receive fair treatment.
We started out the day only to have several of the legionnaires who are working in the court section come by and tell us that we needed to let someone go so that they could go work in the courts. Apparently the courts did not have enough people to cover all of the clerk and bailiff positions. The thing that stinks about this is that MRDD is supposed to be the 5th largest department in the state and we only had 4 people to start with. Now we are down to three, and things have been crazy, but I think we are starting to get settled in to an extent.
A very funny thing for many of you though, I am the one in charge of the budget, payroll, and paying the bills. It has been going all right, except for the fact that we are going to need twice the amount of money that we were budgeted. Oh well, it is a lot of fun, and I am getting to run all over the place. I will talk to you guys later.
