More Signs that Young Will Retire
This blogger has already particpated in the rumors about Congressman Bill Young's retirement, but the St. Pete Times continues to lead the way in throwing wood on the fire, noting that another senior aide for Young (see photo) is leaving to join the private sector.
Legislative assistant, legislative correspondents and field representatives come and go, but when multiple senior staffers start leaving, it usually means they know something that we don't.
In the comments left on the Buzz, someone threw in a new name (or at least new to me) - former St. Pete city councilman and current state representative, Richard Kriseman. Despite one poorly spelled commentator scoffing at the idea, Kriseman would be a very strong candidate for what would be a swing district - and I think we would all enjoy watching Kriseman and Mayor Rick Baker go at it.
