When I resumed blogging, I toyed with the idea of starting each week with a feelgood story, but to be frank, there aren’t that many of them. Here, however, is a fantastic one about a man who works for the council in his home town, and gives his constituents back more than they give him. We should all have such a guy in our community.
“I got sick of sitting in useless council meetings where people just drank coffee and did nothing about the complaints that were coming through in waves. I thought: ‘Right! I’ll just roll my sleeves up and do it myself.’ “
Needless to say, the council are trying to stop him. And failing, because he has massive community support (and a 75% voting margin every election). The man should get an award from the Queen. But he won’t, of course, and I suspect he’d just be embarrassed by it.
Read the whole thing because it will make you feel good about the human race, even if only momentarily.
