People on the Move

Lobby moves, significant staffing changes, and more top the roundup this week

Texas primaries are in full swing, but is there enthusiasm down ballot?

Seems like the lobby is mostly holding fire in all these wide open seats where many of the races have no shape just yet because there are so many candidates. Most of those will have to go to runoffs before folks in Ausitn really take sides. But toward the top of the ticket, Gov. Greg Abbott and his GOP opponents are crisscrossing the state while Democrat Beto O’Rourke is largely moving his campaigning online for the moment as Omicron rages. And you gotta love that Sid Miller and James White are practically already shouting at each other in public as they face off for the GOP nomination for Ag Commissioner.

Giddyup, y’all.

Meantime, you People are Movin’. “The only thing that stays the same is everything changes,” goes the line in the old country song written by Bobby Braddock. No relation. Lobby moves, significant staffing changes, and more top the roundup this week. If you have career news the Texas Capitol community needs to know about – whether it’s your news or gossip – let me know: ksbraddock@gmail.com is the address and POTM should be in the subject line so I don’t lose track. Thank you.

Here’s the latest edition of People on the Move.
