Councilmembers' First Jobs

As part of his promotion of his third annual Youth Jobs Fair next week, Mayor Mark Mallory had his staff collect a list of the first jobs held by council members. Here's what some of them said they did:

Laketa Cole: paper route, Rally's and KFC.

David Crowley parked cars and sold newspapers.

Chris Monzel caddied, worked at McDonald's, then at Bethesda North delivering food to patients.

Leslie Ghiz worked at TCBY.

John Cranley was a janitor in high school. Later, he waited tables at a country club.

Chris Bortz: Construction worker, camp counselor, "wrangler" and trail guide and bar back.

Jeff Berding: Construction worker, drug store clerk.

Roxanne Qualls: cashier in a shoe store. she later managed a house-painting business.

Cecil Thomas delivered newspapers, worked in the junior high school library, did janitorial work in nursing homes and mopped floors for Cincinnati Gas & Electric Co.

City Manager Milton Dohoney was once a page at a Louisville library, worked at a day care and a nursing home. He also worked "100 years ago" at his parents' restaurant called Milt's Place.

Mallory was a production assistant at WCET in the summer of 1977. The next summer, he washed cars at a dealership. He also delivered phone books and worked at the library.

Oh, the good old days !

We knocked on doors selling cleaning cloths for the handicapped !

30% commission !

It is good to see our elected officials willing to be humble !

Somehow, we even think the silver spoon candidates had to prove themselves !

I'd like to know what some of the aides' first jobs were. The way some of them act so immaturely, you'd think it was their first job.

How did Crowley park "cards"? Did he park them up his sleeve? Are you calling Crowley are cheater? I would take it back Jane, before the old man gives out your personal cell phone number to his supporters.

While we are on the subject of city council and jobs, perhaps the snarky jerks from COAST and the Taliban wing of the local GOP might want to make note of the following:

Former Council aide Scott Gehring has just been hired as an executive at one of the largest non-profits in the TriState. He is the Vice-President of Program Development at Volunteers of America.

While Cappell, Harlow, et al, continue to blog on here all day from their Mommy's basements, know that Scott is making more money than all of you combined.

Not bad for someone whose 25th birthday is tomorrow.

"Former Council aide Scott Gehring has just been hired as an executive at one of the largest non-profits in the TriState. He is the Vice-President of Program Development at Volunteers of America."

The job pays less than $50K a year.

Translation: Gehring works as a "hands-on" staffer for sex offenders. I'm sure Cappell and Harlow are insanely jealous of this dream job.

Mallory senior carried the bags for junior. Isn't the library where junior obtained his vast management experience?

What was David Pepper's first job?

 
at 2:20 AM, April 11, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Pepper takes what ever job Daddy gives or sets up for him...

Why are we discussing Scott Gehring? Too bad he's going to work for the libs, he could have made a great state rep... Don't let them brain wash ya!

Doesn't Ghiz still work at TCBY - I swore a ditzy blond scooped my ice cream the other day.

I'm glad to hear Mallory is using his resources to compile stupid lists like these while our city is going to pot. Hopefully he can add Mayor to his list of last jobs!

Bortz is a true cowboy; very impressive yet humorous all the like.

Pepper's first job was managing the household servants.

Anon 9:43, is that FTBT's first job or the one he currently holds, or both?

Given Mallory's support of Citylink it's not out of line to mention Ghering's job at the VOA. Citylink wants to import felons from the prison system to live here, and the VOA imports sex offenders. I hope they're both out of work soon.

Cole's first job - making runs on her bicycle

Bortz - neatly stacking daddy's $100 bills

Pepper - as previously mentioned, managing the household servants

The VOA job pays 80 grand a year, money that COAST sockpuppets will never see in their entire lives.

From that same job description:

Requirements

Position requires a bachelor’s degree (but a master’s degree is preferred) with at least 10 years of professional experience which includes a proven track record for successful project and/or program development and management. Strong oral and written communication skills are required as well as exceptional interpersonal skills. A general understanding of financial planning principles and budgeting is necessary with advanced financial management experience preferred.


Gehring couldn't meet one of these qualifications, much less all of them. That job may indeed pay $80,000/year. Too bad Gehring is at least 10 years away from being qualified to fill it.

Don't worry about who I am, especially since I already make close to 80k/year and I don't have to work with sex offenders to earn it. It's nice to be young and in a position to not even want a job like this one.

That's right. Pepper is a total moron. Never has done a darn thing on his own. A true idiot; barely can put two sentences together. His resume's a fraud, and his rich daddy must have arranged for his grades to be inflated all those school years. And any jobs, awards or recognition he ever got along the way were clearly just arranged by others.

Must make it extra hard for Heimlich/GOP/COAST/Finney to take that such a total and complete loser beat their impressive, accomplished self-made incumbent so easily (even when almost every other Republican won Hamilton County on the same election day).

These clowns should go back to their first jobs, they clearly can't run a city.

That job listing was for a job in CHICAGO...at twice the cost of living, that same job would pay $40-$45k per year here in Cincinnati...good try though.

I thought Gehring "quit" to work full-time on his State Rep. race?
And to "Hey Gehring-Windelman"'s point of his qualifications. It does say "good ORAL skills", and he is working with sex-offenders...

This really sucks !

PATHETIC 'family values'

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE DEMOCRAT 2008 !

When Gehring's campaign for state rep reaches its ignominious conclusion, he'll switch to the Dems.

Ooh, Boss Mallory spent a summer weekend schlepping garbage cans at WCET once. That sure qualifies as a "first job". Calling that "Production Assistant" to glam it up sure seems to have taught him something about putting makeup on a pig, though, a talent he has used well ever since.

You're all wrong. Scott Gehring's first job was losing elections. First for Delhi Trustee, then for State Representative (twice). Here's a good question - has C. Scott ever garnered more than 40% in any election he ever ran in?
