City Government Jobs
The best city government jobs are those jobs which, for better or worse, make a city run. Now whether they make said city run effectively or smoothly is an entirely different question altogether, but the people serving in these city government jobs are, ostensibly at least, servants of the people. Or they could just really be corrupt. It's all a matter of oversight to make sure that people with city government jobs...do their jobs properly.
- Mayor. The mayor is the best city government job for obvious reasons: You are the big cheese. You are in fact the highest-ranking officer in the municipal government of either a big, urban city or a local town. Depending on the type of governing system that your city employees, you could be a first among equals on the city council, which is like saying you are the head of a city. This is under a council-manager local government. In a mayor-council government, the mayor's office and the city council are usually separate.
- Councilman. The second-best city government job is being a councilman on the city council since your duties will consist primarily of legislative things, seeing as how a city council apes the function of a congress or a parliament. As an esteemed councilman on the city council, your will be subjected to attending duties like proposing bills, passing laws, and holding votes, all in an effort to begin to establish some form of order in your city, by way of governing it. In some cities, your city council may also be called the Board of Supervisors instead, perhaps because your state requires this as a technicality in the law.
- Council Speaker. In all honesty, the legislative body of the US--Congress--is not the only place you can find a speaker. Many local city governments have their own speakers who are elected to be the leader of whatever political party they belong to. So in your role as speaker, you are expected to do nothing more than to basically be a partisan advocate for advancing your party's--and only your party's--legislative agenda. There is prominence to be had, to be sure, in this city government job.
