Mayors should work like good water heaters

Gayla Brumfield is Clovis’ new mayor. Here’s what Raymond Atchley is expecting:

“Please take may analogy in the right way,” he wrote in an e-mail in response to an editor’s question, “but I want my mayor to work very much like my water heater. I always have plenty of hot water, it makes me feel better, and yet I never think about where such bliss comes from or the whole process involved before I get it.

“I want my mayor to do such a great job I rarely think of the hard work to produce the benefit.”
