A city mid-level manager at CityCampSF on Saturday brought up the problem of how budgetary decisions influence perception of gov workers. Usually public affairs and communications staff are first fired during lean times because they are not providing direct services. Of course, they are the ones communicating directly with clients. So it’s a one-two punch when things are bad – less services, and less communication between agencies and the citizenry.
