Ben and Andrew

August 21, 2014

Ben!

Mr. Maguire.

Ben!

Mr. Maguire.

Come with me for a minute. I want to talk to you….I just want to say one word to you….just one word.

Yes sir.

Are you listening?

Yes sir, I am.

Plastics.

Exactly how do you mean?

There’s a great future in plastics. Think about it. Will you think about?

Yes sir, I will.

Enough said. That’s a deal.

….

Andrew!

NT2.

Andrew!

NT2.

Come with us for a minute. We want to talk to you…We just want to say one word to you…just one word.

Yes.

Are you listening?

Yes.

Development.

Exactly how do you mean?

There’s a great future in development.  It could be the focus of your second term. But it requires vision for the future.

Yes.

The second term won’t be like the first. Not at all. It’ll be more difficult.

Yes, I know.

And you have to have a vision for the future, and a plan. It’s not enough for you to say that you were a good governor over the last four years. That’s true, but it’s not enough. It’s never enough. You have to tell the people what you plan to do in the next four years. You have to give them a reason to vote for you. 

Yes, I know.

Tell the people what you are going to do, Andrew. Look forward, Andrew. You can build things. You’re father always said there are two kinds of governors in the world — builders and stewards. What are you, Andrew? A builder? Or a steward?

Being a builder is better.

Exactly. And so the key word is what?

Development.

Exactly. Enough said. That’s a deal.
