The Newly Elected Official

Newly Elected Official

An official on taking up his new post, asked his predecessor: “For efficiency sake, how should I proceed?”

The retiring official sporting a big smile, begrudgingly replied: “In your first year in office, act honestly and with decorum. Act in a semi-upright way and somewhat cautiously during the second and third year.  Then you can muddle along in the fourth and final year.”

The elected official heaved a deep sigh and shook his head. “How can I hold out until the fourth year?”
