It’s a very lucky person who can look back on a job they loved to do. Lucky too, is the person who can say they truly loved their boss. It’s all the more rare when you can say both.
I worked for Grant Woods as his office spokesperson from mid-1994 until the end of his second term as Arizona’s attorney general in 1999.
As a press secretary for an elected official, a person is typically responsible for writing speeches, crafting statements, and massaging the intricate details of anything that person says in public.
In Grant’s case, I often needed to repeat his actual spoken words for some reporter who wasn’t familiar with his style and couldn’t quite believe what they heard him say, “Did he really call the sheriff a GOOF? He didn’t say the mayor was a brain-donor, did he?”
