My talent lies in putting teams together and helping those teams work.

She's honest. She's open. She'll tell you like it is. She has this inherent quality of knowing what's right. She takes it all very seriously.

She was the lawyer at the American Bar Association that was keeping the lawyers ethical. What better person do we want? She's got the practical experience.

Jerry very much wanted to have somebody who was sitting around his table advising us on the day-to-day stuff. We had no ethics person for the whole city staff, right down to the grass roots.
