Dying to know what books is on the nightstand of Rhyan Van Horn, TriMet’s senior accountant of treasury and cash management? No, it’s not “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Transit Agencies Facing a $12 Million Budget Shortfall.” In a lightning round Q&A with the Oregon Emerging Local Government Leaders Network blog, Van Horn says it’s “War & Peace” by Tolstoy. “It’s been there for over two years,” she says But I only have about 100 pages out of the 1,500 left.”
I’m the co-founder and executive director of ELGL. I love my job. Other things I love: local government, my family, my dog Michael Jordan, sandwiches, naps, books, and skee-ball.
