For the Love of Data
- By Heather Locke - 
Oh to be a survey!
Clear, easy and clean.
Poised to be helpful,

Presenting results, 
Concise, colorful and lean.

Dark Winter Reflections: A Haiku
- By Erin Caldwell -
The snow gently falls
Where have all our snow plows plowed?
Are residents trapped?

My Favorite Words that Rhyme with Survey
- By Angelica Wedell -
My favorite words that rhyme with “survey”
Often line up with a workday.
Some web meetings call for hairspray
Especially if it’s a Monday.
Certainly no time for horseplay,
Until Friday, well then, Okay!
Anyway
Now days when I take a survey
I read it from my phone display.
Convenience is a true mainstay
Of connecting with most folks two-way.
And that’s what all the experts say.
I’m thinking of my friends today
At ELGL, NLC, and ICMA.
Whenever COVID is way passé
I’d love to meet again someday.
Until then I want to say
Have a happy happy holiday!

City Manager Sugarplum Dreams
- By Erin Caldwell -
A manager pondered one night
I wonder what might delight
All in my town
Who voted hands down
For a winter festival bright

From Polco she knew
A festival new
Was needed for wintertime doldrums
She asked for feedback
On a plan of attack
And the sugarplum dance was great fun

Snow Plow Limerick
- By Erin Caldwell -
There once was a manager in town
She was slipping and sliding around
Then a bright sight
To her great delight
The snow plows came plowing downtown

Ode to Surveys: A Haiku
- By Heather Locke -
Residents speak up
Local gov listens closely
Feedback can bring change.
