What if each of us calls the city manager's office?

Surely many city managers/mayors watched 60 Minutes last night. I wonder what their Y2K question volume has been today? What if we make it a little heavier? It can't hurt to call the office and ask what's being done in your town or city, and it may well do some good. Tallies ARE kept of such calls and they DO make a difference in policy. Maybe ask a friend to call too. If you have time, call the governor's office. If you get any interesting or humorous responses, let's hear them on this thread.

Walt, Not bloody likely. The people who should be fixing Y2k will be left to do that. They are paid too much to answer phones. We will be handed off to over-worked and under paid administartive assistants.

I've been one of those overworked, underpaid administrative assistants, that's what they're FOR, and that's how I know calls on various issues are tallied and reported to The Powers That Be. How will They know people care about the Y2K issue if they're not told?

Last time I called our city manager's office I asked, "Can you tell me who is in charge of ______'s y2k contingency planning?" The lady answering the phone said "What's Y2k?"

Need I say more? Linda
