West Palm Beach Democratic Rep. Mark Pafford, who once caused a stir in the House minority office with his former employer’s Caller ID, has got a new job.
Pafford, who until June 30 oversaw job development for the West Palm Beach homeless shelter, The Lord’s Place, is now a special projects manager for GRD Solutions, a company with offices in Palm Beach Gardens that provides emergency management services to private companies and governments.
But it was his job at The Lord’s Place which gives the two-term House member one of his better tales.
Checking in with fellow House Democrats a couple months back, Pafford called the office from work. The Caller ID read: ‘The Lord,’ Pafford recalls.
“They kind of freaked out,” Pafford said of staffers on the receiving end of the call. “They really didn’t know what that call was about.”
