Was stunned that I was included in the list of the top 10 most powerful people in Long Beach compiled by LBPOST.com.
There are a lot of people in this town, some known, some unknown who are very powerful both in a good way and in a bad way. Power has many meanings.
I have received some very nice calls and emails (some from my council colleagues and one from someone who is also on the list) about being on the list.
I do appreciate the mention but I also realize I wouldn't be on that list without the help and support of a lot of people (staff, family, friends, constituents). I'd list them all but there are way more than 10.
