A wonderful bureaucrat

It's not an urban legend! City government can work.

My name was spelled wrong on my voter registration for the state of Massachusetts. I was unsure how to proceed, I Googled "Massachusetts voter registration" and emailed the people in some city office describing my problem and asking what immense amount of forms I had to fill out to change things.

I was absolutely floored when I got a prompt email back, saying that if I could send him my correctly spelled name the wonderful city of Boston worker would try to get it fixed for me and save me from the red tape. I got an official letter a few days ago telling me that my misspelled name had been corrected.

Thank you effective city employee!
