Now, I’m no politics junkie, but I am a tech junkie. Here’s a story about Philly’s City elections chief planning to cash in on a pension plan.
People are upset because he never shows up at his office, or bothers to vote. That’s not cool, but surely Clark can stay connected with a computer, smartphone, and an email account. Hmm, perhaps not so much the computer or email:
Clark said he does not use email and has no city-issued cellphone, but uses his personal phone to check in with his staff. He also reiterated his defense of working away from the office, saying, ‘As an elected official, you get called to do different things. You’re not just sitting at the desk. This is a world of technology; I’m always in communication.’
I guess he calls his office a lot? And talks to whoever in his office gets the emails that should be going to him but don’t because he doesn’t use email?
A world of technology, indeed.
