Yup, I applied to be the Director there. Went through the interviews and was offered the job. Thought about it, looked hard at the pros and cons, and in the end; thanks to a couple of friends, opted not to take the job. Gave the reason of the pay not being enough. THANK YOU to the friends that warned me off of that fiasco. I truly wish I could have taken that job, had there been more incentive for me to take it I would have gladly; but a low salary, a looming budget crisis, and a couple of personal reasons thrown in, I am glad I didn't. When I did turn it down, I was offered, almost immediately, a promotion in the system I work for now. Made me even gladder I stayed. A lot of old boys networking and small town politics in this one. VERY ugly.
