Best of Local Folk: Just Folks

Best Bureaucrat

Dave Zelenok, city transit director

Dave Zelenok is busy, busy, busy. He's in meetings from sun-up to sun-down. But he's always got a cheery smile for you, and his quick wit and sense of humor are the type you thought was outlawed for government workers. If he wore a hat, he's the type who would tip it as he passed you in the street. He gets a little nervous when things get too political, but his smooth style and winning charm pull him through every time. He doesn't (much) talk in that bureaucratic mumbo jumbo which is impossible to translate. In fact, when he talks about things like roads and overpasses, it sounds almost glamorous. Almost. (CD)
