Political Haggling – I am on furlow.

Because of politics, I am out of job, at least for a few weeks. My contract has been held up and I am told that I can’t come into the office without a contract.

Much of the work here is done by consultants and contractors like me, so I don’t think this will last too long, but politics is strange. These people have little regard for actually running Westchester county.

Here is the local newspaper’s view. It does not go into the deep political divide that caused these problems.

One interesting thing is that I wrote the programs that facilitate the retrieval of the Acquisitions and Contracts Board documents and information, and I designed the workflow systems that makes the contract system work. I am hoisted on my own petard.

This could not have come at a better time, though. I have to finish the chicken shed and install the bees in the next two weeks.
