Seems with elections coming up and all, the county legislators were too busy to gather for a group shot with newly-appointed Legislator Jay Hood Jr. So they stuck his head shot on the body of former Legislator Roman Rodriguez.
And whoever did the graphics maybe needs to take a few extra computer classes.
We’ve compared the two for your viewing enjoyment (and ours!) Below are two photographs from the Legislature’s Web site. The first was up in April and includes Roman.
This is the picture up today with Jay on Roman’s body or as I like to call it “Jaymon.”
“I guess they did the best they could with it,” Hood Jr. said from his vacation in Mexico.
“It’s obviously cut and pasted like that, but that’s okay,” he said. “It didn’t bother me.”
Laurence Toole, clerk to the Legislature, said the photo was re-done by the county’s Management Information Systems Department.
And it’s not the first time—Toole said that former Legislator Denise Kronstadt’s head was once pasted onto the body of Chris Seidel, the confidential secretary to the chair.
Many thanks to staff writer Christina Jeng for finding the old Legislature shot on an archive site and putting the two up here for comparison.
