I found out today that mine is one of three positions that are going to be eliminated from the HSD. While I am sad about this I realized awhile back that I just couldn’t continue being in the same space as SS nor do I want to work under the direction of JM. It has been time to move on and now I know for certain. Tomorrow the official announcement will be made and thats that. I have until January of 2007 to find another position. There is a possibility that the position will not be elimated, as this consolidation requires the approval of the Seattle City Council in order to happen. It looks like they are going to give there approval as far as the reorg goes but there is almost certainly going to be some jobs shifted or lost in the process. I’m heading them all off and finding work elsewhere, either in another department or at the county/federal level. Time to catch the bus.
