Happy New Year! In the past few weeks we celebrated Independance Day as well as our latest changing of the guard from one Rotary President to another. It only makes sense then that this edition of Better Know a Rotarian is devoted to... Marcia Lynch of course!
I sat down with Marcia in this election year while she was on the campaign trail kissing babies and shaking hands. We met at the Bread Basket, presumably because it's the best place for a morning photo op and her "people" had undoubtedly tipped off the Republican & Flyer that she would be there. You see, Marcia is an extremely controversial person, as most career politicians are. I personally can't think of a more polarizing political candidate in 2016 than Marcia Lynch (although technically she's not a candidate since she's not up for re-election this year).
I of course learned all about this controversial figure from the most reliable of sources, Danville Chatter. You see, facebook isn't just for Pado posting about robots, or Susan Hill posting about casserole dishes. Facebook should primarily be used for reposting unverified political information and memes from blogs that, while possibly not true, support your overall position. Facebook is where I found out most of what I know about Marcia's political sneakiness. I heard she even executed a complicated coup of local government by being on the Town Council AND being the Chamber Director. I'm not sure where her email server is, but I will find out. Here is some more of the real dirt I picked up at breakfast:
- Marcia lives for her grandkids
- Marcia lives for Danville
- Marcia makes tough decisions we elected her to make that sometimes not everyone likes
- She was hired to be the Chamber Director, and voted to sit on the town council, and it's really not more complicated than that.
- Did I mention she lives for her grandkids?
- She really loves the town and is trying to improve it.
- The grandma thing cannot be overstated.
After our breakfast I realized two things: 1.) Marcia Lynch, whether you vote for her or not, is NOT a politician. She makes the decisions she feels is best for our town regardless of what it means for her politically. 2.) If your facebook post begins with something regarding "what the founding fathers intended", I will skip over your post. The founding fathers did not live in a world with Pokemon Go.
