Lake Park Commission Candidate Forum

Lake Park Town HallWednesday, February 27th, the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce hosted a candidate forum in Lake Park Town Hall.

The forum was designed for residents to get to know the candidates for the Lake Park Commission.

The full slate of candidates were on hand answering questions posed to them by Executive Board Members of the Chamber.

Five of the candidates presented a vision for the community.

Five of the candidates answered the questions posed by the panel thoughtfully and with hope for the future.

Five of the candidates represent a new direction for the Town, a look towards the future and a “work together” mentality that will help move the Town of Lake Park forward as neighbors; not a divided town of old vendettas that date back to the 90’s.

Five of the candidates deserve our votes!

The incumbent continued his policy of blame everyone else, offer no positive solutions and accept credit for things he had nothing to do with.

We have five candidates who have dedicated their time, talents and service to the Town of Lake Park and we have an incumbent.

Get to know your candidates, we have five who will be great for our community.  Get to know them and VOTE on March 12th!

The Candidate Forum will be replayed daily until next Wednesday, March 6th at 11AM and 7PM on Comcast Channel 18.

HIRED – The Job on CBS

the-jobAWESOME new show!

I haven’t heard that much about this show and just happened on it tonight, thankfully the premier…. meeting all the possibilities and promise of a new reality based program…  WOOHOO, great show!

The jist of the show… a major US company is seeking to fill a professional position.  Five candidates audition for the job.

On the first show, The Palm Restaurant of New York is seeking an Assistant Manager.

A twist, not only are the candidates competing for a job, but three other companies also sit in the wings with the opportunity to offer a job to the candidates.

Round one of the job interview has all five candidates doing the job one will be hired for.  At the completion of this task one candidate is let go.  In tonight’s episode it was a sweet woman who had no business being in the interview process, her inability to handle simple tasks of a restaurant were basic for first year workers.

In round two, each candidate was asked 3 questions about the company they were interviewing for, at the end one is released.

Round 3 is a test of the knowledge of the candidates with the existing staff.  Each candidate is asked to name three of the people they worked with on the first night and tell their positions at the restaurant.

After round 3 the outside companies have the opportunity to offer a job to one of the candidates.   On this episode, one of the outside firms did make an offer to a candidate and he accepted the job.

The final two candidates then are set up for a final interview.  The Palm executive staff ask questions of the finalists.  At the conclusion of the interview a job is offered, in this episode the New Assistant Manger for The Palm is…..

Jann, a mother of six from Alabama.

The Palm then made a surprise by offering the second place finisher a job at their new restaurant in Boston.

Awesome job, great premise… Lisa Ling is a perfect host.  The Job has been added to my DVR list.
