More Examples of Local Government Paraprosdokians

More examples of Paraprosdokians - those wonderful figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected ,yet many times humorous - which are appropriate for local public officials.  
1. Many locally elected bodies, to be sure they hit the target, shoot first then call whatever they hit the target.

2. The men and women who serve in local government public offices don't really get any smarter while they are in office; they just learn how to act better in public.

3. Serving as a local public officer reinforces the notion that you are never too old to hear something utterly stupid in a public meeting.
