People on the Move
Major appointments, new lobby gigs, and more
It was a little weird at
first, but now talking politics and campaigns for trade associations via Zoom –
instead of in person – is really no problem at all. Connecting with all of you,
even if it can only be online, is healthy and helpful. This week, the Texas
Public Power Association virtually hosted Dallas Morning News
reporter Gromer Jeffers and myself for
a conversation on the political environment and the coming elections. Our
publisher Harvey Kronberg and your editor are
available for similar online events for your group. Just send us a note.
It’s all part of our reality now. If you haven’t read Jon
Fisher’s report on what a legislative session during a pandemic may actually
be like, give
it a look.
Thanks to listeners of the
Texas Take podcast for sticking with us during the pandemic. This
week, we completed our 200th episode. The show, hosted by reporter Jeremy
Wallace and yours truly, is a joint venture of Quorum Report
and the Houston Chronicle. And yes, I am the only remaining
original cast member. Check out the
show here or subscribe to the Texas Take on Apple Podcasts or
Google Podcasts. Here’s to 200 more.
Now, to the important
stuff: What’s going on with you? The career news has
been significant this week, from major appointments to some new lobby gigs. You
can always let everyone know what’s happening by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use POTM in
the subject line.
Here’s the latest edition of People on the Move.
