When will KFD have a female on the line? Is there something in your hiring practices that forbids this? Do you ever have women who take the test?

Agreed. Silly video for a “professional” occupation. This is our public funds at work. Nice representation of our community, Mayor Kawakami.
Pathetic boys club is all it is.
