I am from Western NY, spent my entire real-life career in government accounting/management. (Sounds like an oxymoron but western NY had been doing quite well until the last decade)
Professionally, in reverse order, I was
A) A town manager for 12 years until retirement.
B) The Chief of Accounting for a county
C) An accountant/auditor strictly in the municipal field. From this I developed a reputation for helping troubled units get out of fiscal stress and turning around units that had “run off the rails”
I also had a second career, I was licensed as an EMT/EMT-A for 34 years, originally as a part time volunteer. When volunteerism began to disappear I worked for municipal and commercial firms. After a benevolent early retirement I did it full time for several years until we came here. My claim to fame here is that I delivered 9 babies.
