Employee Spotlight
Lindsey Glisson, Deputy Clerk of Council
Lindsey Glisson was appointed as Deputy Clerk of Council on
January 6, 2015. She is versatile, and has held various positions with the city beginning when she was 15 years old, working summers during high school with Parks and Recreation as an Activity Leader for Community Schools. Later in 2007, she returned to work for Parks and Recreation as a Site Supervisor for Community Schools. She next worked as Columbus Police Department Criminal Records Technician in 2008. In September 2013, she became Administrative Secretary for Clerk of Council.
 
Although she has enjoyed the various positions, she feels that the job of Deputy Clerk is truly her "niche". It helps her comprehend the inner workings of the city. She now realizes that the administrative and executive levels put a great deal into making sure the city is run properly. In addition, she finds the position rewarding because she is able to help the citizens, and ultimately city employees work for the citizens. When describing her duties, she explains that if council could have assistants, she and the Clerk of Council would be just that.   Also, she maintains official documents for the city, attends various meetings, keeps records of those meetings, and assists the Clerk of Council.
 
Lindsey enjoys keeping busy. She is in the bachelors program for human services at the University of Phoenix. However, she is very creative, and enjoys working with crafts in the little spare time that she has between work and school full-time. She shares her words of wisdom: "If you work really hard, learn from your mistakes, and stay true, kind and humble, good things will come to you."

October Is Crime Prevention Month
 


Crime Prevention Month is a good time to remind us of some actions we can take to keep us from being victims of crimes. There are many safety "gadgets" you can purchase to protect yourself but the suggestions offered by Officer Maria Jones, G.R.E.A.T Officer, are simple and the only thing you need is a bit of "common sense":

1-Always be aware of your surroundings.
 
2-While out shopping or public places, have your vehicle keys in your hand, ready to make a quick and safe entry into your vehicle.
 
3-As you shop, never place gifts, packages or your purchases in the vehicle and re-enter the mall/store. Many times, thieves sit in wait and will break your vehicle windows, etc in an attempt to steal those items.

4-Never leave your purse, wallet, or other valuables in your vehicle. (Especially where they can be seen or detected.)
 
5-If something feels, unsafe. Always, error on the side of caution. Go with your 'gut feelings.'
 
6-Shopping or traveling in groups or with another person, can add to your safety.
 
7-Never talk on your cell phone, as you enter the parking lot/parking garage. Although you make call yourself an expert on "multi-tasking" talking on the phone/texting on the phone takes away your full attention from what surrounds you.
 
8-Always use caution when you exercise or jog/run outdoors (during pre-dawn and dusk time frames). Always use a well lighted path/park/route.
 
9-Only carry the funds/money you need for that day. Never carry all of your personal identification/affects (l.e. birth certificate, social security card, passport, etc).
 
10-Never carry your personal/household bills with you or in your vehicle. Those can be used by criminals to steal your identity, which can ruin your life/credit, temporarily or permanently.
 
11-Always call 9-1-1- if you see something suspicious or a crime in progress. Never wait to report a crime, because evidence can be loss and witnesses can forget key details in an effort that may help police capture a suspect. Try to also obtain a good physical description of the suspect, if you can and the vehicle if used in that situation to give accurate info to police.
 
12-Don't display expensive jewelry, or electronic devices, on your clothing or person.
 
13-If you experience the unfortunate incident of a "robbery" never fight the suspect, give up what they want, your life is much more valuable than items taken. 
 
 
STAY SAFE, BE PREPARED!   Listen To Your Grandmother.
 
The Emergency Management Division of the Columbus Fire and Emergency Medical Services constantly gets requests to speak to civic groups, corporations, businesses and school classes about how to keep their employees, students, families and themselves safe during serious or major emergencies. They often want to know what they should have in their emergency kits in case of a prolonged power outage or if they need to evacuate. How do I know what to tell them? Do I know because I have been to countless hours of training? Do I know because of my 23 years of experience in the business? I have never shared the secret with anyone until now. I think back to what my grandmother would have and did tell me. Remember? If you were out playing when the weather started to turn threatening, grandma would come to the back door and yell, "Better get yourselves in this house don't you see that big black cloud coming?" Once you were in she would watch the weather carefully and maybe turn on the TV to see if the weatherman had anything to say about it. When the heavy rain and strong winds would start and the lights would start to flicker on and off she would turn off the TV and turn on her battery powered transistor radio and tell us, "Go get in the hallway on the inside of the house. Don't get next to the windows, something could blow in on you". "If you hear the tornado sirens duck down and cover ya'lls heads and don't come out until I tell ya". We rode out many a big storm that way. We didn't know it at the time but that is exactly what the National Weather Service tells us to do now.
 
If you were lucky enough to visit a pool on a hot, hot summer day and lightning would flash off in the distance, what would grandma say? "Get on out now and let's go inside, that lightning will fry you like an egg in that pool." Remember the cautionary, "don't talk on the telephone when it's lightning", or "Wait till the lightning passes before you take a bath or shower", and "Get away from those trees boy, it's lightning, what's wrong with you?"
 
Grandma always said, "If we get run out of here because of a flood, or the house is damaged, take plenty of your prescription medicine, some extra clothes, important papers, something to play with and anything you might need for a while. We don't know when we might get to come back". What if the roadway is flooded? Remember grandma saying, "Don't drive off into that water, you don't know what's under there. They might find us down in Florida if we get washed away. What's wrong with you boy?"
 
Well, now you know. If you need more good grandma information use that new fangled device cell phone you have or that high dollar computer and go to ready.ga.gov/ or FEMA.gov for anything you need to know about staying safe in disasters or being better prepared. They won't admit it but I bet it's written by somebody's grandma.

CCG Holds Annual United Way Kick-Off Breakfast
 
Columbus Consolidated Government department heads, city management and officials of the United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley enjoyed a delicious breakfast at the Columbus Trade and Convention Center on Thursday, August 27, 2015 and officially began the CCG 2015 United Way Campaign.

Mayor Teresa Tomlinson thanked employees for their support of the United Way over the past several years. She stated that city employees support the United Way with their monetary donations as well as their volunteer hours.

Isaiah Hugley, Columbus City Manager, issued a challenge to those present to continue their support of the United Way by pledging to raise $151,500 during this year's campaign. City Manager Hugley stated "Your support last year enabled the less fortunate in our community to be fed, clothed and housed. In other words, you provided help to those in the community who need it.   I know that we can meet or exceed this year's goal of $151,500."

The theme this year is "What's Your Dream?" The campaign ends on October 31, 2015 but departments are urged to complete their campaigns before that date if possible.

 
The following departments exceeded their goals:
  • Bull Creek Golf Course
  • City Council
  • City Manager's Office
  • Civic Center
  • Clerk of the Council
  • Columbus Convention & Trade Center
  • Community Reinvestment

Medice, Cura Te Ipsum! 
 by Joseph D'Angelo

To my knowledge, this will be the CCG Insight Newsletter's first Latin lesson. Roughly translated, the heading of this article means "Physician, heal thyself."
Anyone who has ever felt frustrated in their work or felt as if their job skills have been eroding is obligated to do something about it. CCG's Leadership Development Program puts its participants on the right path.

Over the course of one year and a dozen or so monthly half-day sessions, those who take part become well-informed, enlightened, tactful and ethical leaders. Each session is led by upper-level decision makers speaking on topics that are important to them. The group learns things about the City and about their own personalities and work styles that it might otherwise take an entire career to discover. Relationships are formed with other likeminded individuals from throughout the city government that members of the class might otherwise never have met.

At some point in the year, the cohort becomes a cohesive unit that starts to become aware of new opportunities to make work-life better and services more efficient for our citizens. This program is not for the elite but rather for the motivated and talented people with a strong desire for improvement regardless of their current position. It is not a guarantee of promotion or tremendous wealth. It is a new set of tools to be used in constructing a career path that is already proving successful and will continue to bear fruit well into our City's future.
 
Editor's Note
At least three individuals were promoted while participating in the Leadership Development Program. Is this purely co-incidental or related to the skills, knowledge and abilities they acquired because of their participation? Why not ask them?

- Jasper Arrington, Captain CFEMS
 
"I think this is a great opportunity for future leaders or just someone who wants to reinforce learning skills."
- Willie Jean Davis, Citizens Service Center
 
"The personal attention from the leaders in our city government has made all the difference."

Columbus Fire/EMS Honors 
 
Lieutenant/EMT Darren Daniel, Sgt/EMT Jeff Ligon, Firemedic Jimmy Bloodworth, Firemedic Brett Albritton, Firefighter/EMT Martin Rogers and Firefighter/EMT David Kirkland were honored at the Columbus City Council meeting held on August 4, 2015 at the City Services Center for saving the life of a 38 year old male patient that was in full cardiac arrest. Because of the quick actions of the crews on Engine 6 and Medic 6, the individual survived with no neurological deficits. He is alive to spend many more years with his family and friends.

Congratulations to these local heroes who work day in and day out saving lives while displaying professionalism and excellence!

Pennies For Pets Campaign  

 
Do you know what your spare change can do for our furry friends? About a year ago, Human Resources adopted a community charitable project that we could support as a team and decided to assist the City's Animal Control Shelter. Over the past year, we have collected different items, such as food, toys, leashes, collars, etc., and cash for the Angel Fund.

FACTS:
From January to June 2015, The Animal Control Shelter has taken in 161 dogs/cats. Did you know that one 25 lb. bag of dog food will feed 25 animals per day? The cost to vaccinate one dog is $3.05 and one cat is $2.62.

Please help support man's best furry friends. We would like to challenge all CCG departments to assist in helping our Animal Control Shelter by starting a "Pennies for Pets" campaign to collect change/coins from all CCG Employees.

Human Resources placed a doggie bank at the front counter for anyone wishing to donate their spare change. We ask that each department do the same. Take the challenge and dig the lint out of your pockets and put those pennies, nickels, dimes or quarters in the jars and see who can collect the most for "Pennies for Pets".

For additional information concerning the "Pennies for Pets" campaign, please contact Human Resources, Sherry Evans @ 706-225-3104.
