Another Sunday, another sandy load of laundry to finish. This weekend, we were in Pacific City, Oregon. You can read more about why this is our new favorite beach in Kent’s latest Confidential (aka one of the many benefits of ELGL membership).
We’re cruising into September with our eyes on a busy month ahead. First up, I’m at the Michigan Municipal League conference, September 13-16. Then, Carmen Mays heads to Niagara Falls for the New York State Association of Counties conference, September 19-21. Then, a whole gaggle of us head to KCMO for the 2016 ICMA conference, September 24-28.
