WELCOME TO THE ADMINISTRATION — Robert Vinson Brannum, news-conference-attending, military-medal-wearing, Post-editorial-hating Ward 5 activist, has been hired on a $37,000 contract with the Office of Veterans Affairs, Suderman reports ( ``[Gray community affairs chief Steve Glaude] says Brannum wasn`t rewarded with a city job because of his `media activities` nor solely because of Brannum`s support of the mayor`s campaign. Brannum was hired, Glaude says, because he`s been an avid advocate for veteran`s affairs ... and has the skills necessary to help the Office of Veteran`s Affairs prepare for the Sept. 11th commemoration.`` Glaude adds that ``if you know anything about Robert, he can be quite animated in his request for employment.``
