People on the Move

Reorganizing in the Office of the Governor, agency changes, lobby moves, and more

SAN ANTONIO – “Somebody call Scott Braddock.”

Those were apparently the words uttered by a top staffer in Texas state government at the conclusion of a tearful farewell speech as that person transitioned from their current job and prepares for a new life in the private sector. The comment drew laughter, I’m told. Honestly, you could not ask for better marketing than that for POTM.

Writing to you from The Alamo City today, where the candidates to lead the Republican Party of Texas, incumbent James Dickey and former Congressman Allen West, are set to debate this morning. I love a chairman’s race, having covered them all the way back to when Tina Benkiser ran the RPT. Democrats, of course, have their own drama and purity tests. But few things in this state’s politics are more enjoyable to me than an RPT chairman’s race.

We’ll see how this unfolds.

Meantime, there were some substantial changes in the careers of combatants at the Capitol and that’s what Fridays are (generally) all about at Quorum Report. Never hesitate to let me know where you’re headed. You can also pass along news concerning others. We can’t be accused of being a gossip rag if you don’t. Let me know what’s up at ksbraddock@gmail.com and use “POTM” in the subject line. That way, it’s less likely to be lost in the shuffle of my inbox.
