I remember reading about our local mayor, and the way she used to complain she didn’t appear enough in the council-produced newsletter.
OVER-WORKED City of Glen Eira CEO Andrew Newton has enough on his plate chasing $40,000 from [a] sacked councillor … but now he’s had to listen to [the Mayor] wail about her photo not appearing enough in the local paper (though the readers aren’t complaining). [She] lectured Newton: “I would like to ask that in future we grasp opportunities to tell the community what we are doing.” Then she rattled off some exciting events in her diary: the opening of a pavilion, a party in the park with scouts presenting a toggle and scarf, and the food business awards. Heck, call the TV stations. (The Age Diary column 24/4/2007.)
Well the Glen Eira News arrived the other day, so I had a look for her photo. She’s on page 1, 2 (twice), 3, 10 (same pic as page 1) and 11. Not bad: 6 pictures in 12 pages.
