Baptism By Fire

Last night I was sworn in as one of Toledo's three new City Councilors... all women. Our new Mayor was also sworn in last night, in front of what I can only call a hostile crowd. Not hostile towards us, but because of the situation we are in right now. We've heard some pretty strong feelings aired by a lot of citizens regarding the proposed placement of an asphalt batch plant here in Toledo.

Here is a bit of history on the subject. The City Council chambers have been jam-packed at these meetings, and it has been interesting for me, and I'm sure for my fellow new councilors, to be jumping into this thing at this particular time. All of us are first-timers at this. We join 4 men on the board who have been at it at least for a while...

Well, last night, the asphalt plant owner and his infamous attorney gave us a two-hour presentation on their side of the story. After a nearly four-hour first meeting as a councilor, I was finally able to breathe a big sigh of relief that the first one is under our belts. Wow. What a way to start a four-year term. To say the least, it will be interesting.

It's a quiet time of year here at the studio, but the perfect time to do some fun, sexy portraits for your 'person', whomever that may be. I'm running this special for Valentines Day. Call for an appointment today, we'll need to get going on this so you can have your prints in time for Valentines Day. Have an awesome weekend!!
