Anybody remember Provincetown, MA?
That’s right, when Mayor Linda Elam had the opportunity to hire a new city manager for Mt. Juliet in the summer of 2007, her first choice was the former city manager from Provincetown, MA – Keith Bergman. Bergman was famous for being a self-described “Al Gore acolyte” – he boasted of having been personally trained by Al Gore to deliver his powerpoint presentation on Global Warming to city officials across the country. Bergman was also renowned for his role in assisting the legalization of gay marriage in Massachusetts.
Provincetown, MA and Mt. Juliet, TN – almost linked by Mayor Linda Elam.
Anyway, Provincetown is in the news again this week:
According to a report in the Provincetown Banner yesterday, this week the school committee in Provincetown, MA unanimously approved a new condom distribution policy for the Provincetown Public Schools, including both Provincetown High School and Veterans Memorial Elementary School.
The policy requires students to speak with a school nurse or other trained counselor to receive the free condoms, but is notable because it does not have a minimum age limit and also because the policy explicitly states that “the school district will not honor requests from parents that students not be allowed to receive condoms.”
Just remember, Linda Elam’s first choice for a new city manager for Mt. Juliet was Keith Bergman, retired city manager of Provincetown, MA.
