“I spent half of my day Thursday listening to a consultant tell public officials how to manage their messages to the media. Lest you think I was insulted, I found myself agreeing with everything Bruce Hennes said. Hennes is a crisis communications specialist based in Cleveland. The Coshocton and Holmes County Health Departments brought him to Coshocton to speak with area politicians, public health officials and business leaders. I hope they heed his words. And I’m sorry that some area leaders didn’t get to hear it. They – and the citizens and customers they serve – would benefit greatly from it as well.”
