We have been informed that DeKalb has chosen a new communications officer. His name is Quinn Hudson and here are his credentials according to his profile at Linked In:
- Member of the Operating Board at the Commerce Club of Atlanta (the same club where Gene Walker sponsored Crawford Lewis as a member).
- The Hudson Group, Inc.
- The Global Soap Project
- And… Michael Thurmond’s Communications Director for his unsuccessful 2010 bid for a Georgia U.S. Senate seat. (Read more about that here: Your morning jolt: Behind Michael Thurmond’s run for the U.S. Senate)
In that AJC blog post, Jim Galloway wrote, “Thurmond is, like Attorney General Thurbert Baker or former Gov. Roy Barnes, an A-list Democrat – often mentioned as a candidate for higher office, but never taking the plunge.”
Coincidentally, there is a seat opening in the 4th district of the U.S. House – the seat currently held by Hank Johnson. Oh, and there’s a seat opening in the U.S. Senate – the seat currently held by Saxby Chambless.
A press release about the first day of school has the word “Thurmond” in it five times.
We found that interesting.
