Survivor Portland Bureaucracy: Day 14

The new guy is now old news. Paul, our newest addition to the cast on Survivor: Portland City Hall: Bureaucracy Edition, lasted only a few days. He received the most votes in yesterday's Tribal Council. Random Immunity didn't save him, as the computer awarded that magic necklace to Ken. And so, Paul Scarlett, Director of Development Services, you must clear out your skinny infill hut and leave the island as quickly as your packing needs permit.

Wow, after all that, we are now down to just five players. Are they the best? Or have they just kept their heads down the longest? It doesn't matter. Survivor marches on.

None of the players was named in any published writing by Nigel Jaquiss, Phil Stanford, or Randy Gragg yesterday, and so no one has Media immunity today. Random Immunity will be awarded by our sophisticated computer system once again, retroactively, to one of today's remaining players at the end of the voting tonight. The person with Random Immunity will remain on the island, at least for another day, even if he or she gets the most votes today. (This is the last Random Immunity award; that feature will be turned off during the Final Four next week.)

And now it's time to vote another one of the city agency directors out of the picture. Do it for any reason, or for no reason, but cast your vote just once a day, please. We'll keep at this, every city workday, until only one bureaucrat survives.

Photos of the original cast, and links to all of their bureaus, are here. Good luck to the five(!) remaining cast members:

Only five players are still on the island. Which Portland city bureau head should be the next to leave?
Chief Dave - Fire Chief Dave Sprando
Ken - Interim Chief Administrative Officer Ken Rust
Lisa - Emergency Communications Bureau Director Lisa Turley
Rosie - Police Chief Rosie Sizer
Revenue Sue - Revenue Bureau Director Sue Klobertanz

Interesting cast remaining: the head bureaucrat of the whole city, three public safety types, and the tax collector. Vaguely biblical.

Well heres to seeing the tax collector off.

Once the tax collector's gone, don't the rest leave on their own?
