The Compton Report

Posted by on September 15 at 17:35 PM

Has anyone seen this man?

Former newscaster and current city council member Jim Compton is missing in action. If you walk by his office on a day when his committee isn’t in session (like yesterday, for example), you’ll find his door shut and his office dark. (I called today, but no one was there to answer.) Admittedly, Compton’s responsibilities as chairman of the council’s Utilities and Technology Committee aren’t exactly arduous (on last week’s agenda: an update on drainage rates and a briefing on the Cedar River Treatment Plant Awards). But you’d think a guy who makes $97,000 a year could at least be bothered to show up to work.
