No big surprise at the response a stack of proclamations from political friends (and frenemies) evoked from the state's “Fiscal Watchdog” as he accepted the Excellence in Leadership Award from Amen Corner.
“Taxpayer dollars!” joked Auditor General Jack Wagner. “It's an honor ... receiving this award makes me humble.”
A room filled with judges, politicos, movers and shakers were spotted at the Mansions on Fifth Wednesday evening, where newly sworn-in prez Erik Wagner was sharing the spotlight while showing off his heavy metal.
“They put the weight of the office on me,” he laughed, holding up his Amen Corner Presidents Necklace.
Elsewhere, June Yonas, Chuck Evans, Eddie Everett, Barb Wagner, Mary Sue Ramsden, Paul Sutter, Thom Naylor, MF owners Mary Del Brady and Richard Pearson, the Hon. Jeff Manning and the Hon. Terry O'Brien were amongst those toasting the 142nd birthday of the networking honey hole that, according to legend, got its name from the shouts of “Amen!” that would punctuate lively discussions of its members after a valid point was made.
