Speaking truth to power – there’s no such thing as neutral

Speaking truth to power – there’s no such thing as neutral

“As public servants, our first job is to tell the truth: about the current state of affairs; about how much it takes to support a community’s goals and dreams (and what those goals and dreams represent in real terms); about the challenges of prioritizing which things will get attention today or tomorrow, or possibly not until a decade from now; and about our own fallibility as human beings who are just trying to get it right.”
