Naples “Food Chain” or Who is the Boss Here?

Naples is a city in Collier County, Florida, United States.
We live in a democracy; we elect our officials to work for us, to manage our community. If the officials do the job well, they get re-elected.  If we don’t pay attention, if we don’t supervise our officials, just like any bad employee they may go rogue.

The federal government has 3 branches:

Legislative (Congress, Senate, House of Representatives), Judicial (Supreme Court, Other Federal Courts) and Executive (President, Vice President, Cabinet)

The Cabinet in order of importance:

1    Speaker of the House of Representatives
2    President pro tempore of the Senate
3    Secretary of State
4    Secretary of the Treasury
5    Secretary of Defense
6    Attorney General
7    Secretary of the Interior
8    Secretary of Agriculture
9    Secretary of Commerce
–    Secretary of Labor
10    Secretary of Health and Human Services
11    Secretary of Housing and Urban Development
–    Secretary of Transportation
12    Secretary of Energy
13    Secretary of Education
14    Secretary of Veterans Affairs
15    Secretary of Homeland Security

State level governing structures: Executive (Governor), Legislative (Senator, Representative, Delegates, Assemblyman), Judicial (District Court of Appeals, Appellate Court and State Supreme Court).

The local government, just like the federal and state government, has three branches: Executive (Mayor, City Manager, County Commissioner, County Executive), Legislative (City Council, County Council, Board of Supervisors, Freeholders) and Judicial (Circuit and County Judges).

That is a lot of people to keep track of! Let’s get to know our employees starting from the most important – local officials, those are the people whose blunders or successes will affect us most of all.

Hi, my name is Julia Adams, writing is my passion. I admire great masters of literature like Franz Kafka and his work “The Metamorphosis”, Voltaire and his triumph “Candide”. I wish I could be more like them! Writing is an art. I write to entertain, to make the reader stop and think. I write to explore our community, our world together.
