About the Governor’s soon to be former press secretary.
Heather Hedrick Teilhet, who has been Perdue’s press secretary since December 2004, said she is quitting to become executive director of the WellStar Institute for Better Health in Marietta. The Institute is a think tank that will look at ways to improve health care by studying things such as how to provide better medical care for the uninsured. Before joining Perdue’s staff, she served as the media spokeswoman for the state parole board and on the staff of former Gov. Roy Barnes and the state Senate. Teilhet is married to state Rep. Rob Teilhet (D-Smyrna). Her replacement has not been announced.
Wow. I bet that could make for some awkward situations.
