I know I'm not the most prolific poster here, and most of you only know me passingly.
I was a legislative aide in the Minnesota House of Representatives for nearly ten years. However the results of this last election were severe enough that 50% of the jobs in my office were in jeopardy. Last week everyone who wished to stay employed here were asked to interview for a position. On Wednesday of this week I was called in and informed that there would not be a position for me. The news was not as shocking as it could have been as it is a scenario that is very real for any of us who work in this business where the whims of the voters can have greater impacts than just on those who run for office.
I am pursuing other leads and hope to have a new job in place soon, and am enthusiastically optimistic about my opportunities ahead.
I ask that you keep me and my young family in your prayers as we face the uncertainties ahead. I don't subscribe to internet services at home so I will be offline for a shortwhile until I land in a new position somewhere soon.
Your prayers are warmly welcome.
Clay (aka Clayman)
