My visit to the Secretary of State

Today I had reason to file some documents with the Secretary of State in California. That's the authority where you file business documents, get forms - all the business entities you do in California.

For me, this is just a visit to an authority.


I've just visited Bruce McPherson's personal office. Or so it seems. Bruce McPherson is the Californian Secretary of State himself. His photo can be seen on the website - on the first page! It's quicker to get to his biography than it is to locate the address of the Business Programs Division. His name is printed on the pre-printed envelopes I got (is he really opening ALL the mail himself??) and he "signed" the filling of the documents (or at least I got his copied signature on the paperwork).

I'm kind of disappointed I didn't get to meet him in personal!

I've only lived in California so I have no idea if it's the same in the rest of the country. For a Swede this seems... hm... alien... A little too personal somehow... or am I only being typically Swedish....
