  3. Although I admire the post with such a handsome, busy man, I must confess that I'm disappointed because I immediately thought we might be getting a peek at you, Leif! Darn! Maybe next time you'll post a self-portrait. Say "Hi" to your secretary; is she still checking my posts?!

  6. Nice to meet your Mayor! He seems a good guy who know his stuff, but I'm quite wary of every kind of politician.

  7. I love municipal (regional?) levels of politics as opposed to federal. I suppose it's like being a nurse as opposed to being a surgeon, more hands-on and you get to see the results of your work.

    When I was a child, I always wanted to be mayor. I was a silly child!

  11. Appears to be a nice person. At least he's got some qualification, unlike so many politicians these days!

    Is he a good mayor? I'm surprised he allowed you to take his photo!

    Aha! I'll bet he's a potential Rotarian!

  15. I guess you remember the first name of the Mayor in Stavanger?? (see 4.July)
    Anyway, he looks like he is enjoying his work as a mayor, and I hope he and his team will continue to do well for the people in Eagan.
