People elected to hold public office are employees. Of whom? We the People. Therefore, every meeting with these people should be conducted as a job interview. YOU are the prospective employer, and they are approaching YOU for a job. It is your responsibility to carefully consider their qualifications and aptitude for that job, then choose the best potential employee.
Why then, do we allow job seekers to conduct meetings, set rules, and expect prospective employers to follow them? Shouldn’t it be the other way around?
