First, let's see if he shows up.

Second, what could he possibly say not just to DHA members' faces, but to Tom, Fran, Nancy, Terry, and everyone else willing to acknowledge that the county is a millstone around our necks, that we should trust the people who voted to hire him?

Third, show up early to get a seat.  The room is tiny and will be packed.
