Paulson takes a state job
Laura Smitherman reports that David Paulson, the spokesman and happy warrior of the Maryland Democratic Party for the last two election cycles, is taking a job starting tomorrow as communicaions director at the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
"I can't stay at the party forever," he said He noted that Dems have had successful election results in the last two cycles. "I've done pretty much all I can do."
Paulson isn't exactly an apolitical choice for a generally apolitical agency. But not a lot of people in the state can boast his list of contacts among the state's media. He certainly leaves big shoes to fill at the state party.
