Staffer’s Notebook

I work at Ottawa City Hall as assistant to a municipal councillor. I have many ideas about returning to work after having children, entering the workplace as a woman over 45, building cities, and working in a a large bureaucratic organization whose decisions have an immediate material effect on people’s lives. I often write emails and memos I don’t send to people who don’t know I exist. This is my notebook dump.
