I applied for a new job

…in the Biden-Harris Administration. Here is the text of my cover letter:

November 25, 2020

Dear President-Elect Biden and staff,

Please accept my resume in application for just about anything I can do. I have extensive experience in working with homeless people, both as a homeless person and running a nonprofit corporation benefitting the homeless of Asheville, NC. I have excellent speaking and written skills, experience in just about everything, and a wide range of knowledge.

I would prefer to remain in the Great Smoky Mountains region if possible, but will relocate as needed.

I do not have an earned college degree but do have a few honorary doctorates in religion. I have written extensively on homeless topics as well as spiritual topics, plus am a songwriter and folksinger.

While I’m certain you have an abundance of applicants with more qualifications, there are few with my range of qualifications and experience. I would point out that I have done this while only being aimed at the success of those I’m serving, and have only just managed to support myself at around 150-175% of poverty level, mostly thanks to Social Security Disability and Retirement funds. I’m not in this for the money and my tax records certainly prove that point in spades. My life is all about service, and usually manages to avoid recognition.

I hope you can find a place for me in your administration. I look forward to hearing from you.


Sincerely,



Gerald L. “Moss” Bliss, D.D.
