My employer (a state agency) has a position on the local Reservoir Board. However, a new law requires that the board member actually be a property owner on the reservoir. I graciously volunteered to serve if they'd just buy me a house there - and a new bass boat (you know, just to "fit in"). Somehow, they didn't seem to want to go along with my offer. Think I should've just asked for a camping spot, aluminum boat, and trolling motor?
