Looks like GA 10 isn’t the only race that will be getting candidate speculation into overdrive this week. Tricia Pridemore, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Development, has tendered her resignation effective April 15th. In the resignation letter, she states “After 20 months, I have finished the job the governor has asked of me.” She will be replaced by the Office’s General Counsel, Blake Ashbee, who will serve as Interim Executive Director according to the letter.
Her letter may be read in full here. Other media using please cite Peach Pundit.
Pridemore is considering a run for the Georgia 11th District congressional seat being vacated by Phil Gingrey. Bob Barr has already announced he’s going to party like it’s 1999, while the other potentially serious contenders of State Senator Barry Loudermilk and House Republican Whip Ed Lindsey remain Coy. Lindsey however, has tipped his hand somewhat by joining twitter with the handle @EdLindsey14. One can assume that’s for a 2014 race or that @EdLindsey numbers 1-13 were already taken.
Neither State Senator Judson Hill nor Judson Hill’s hair were available for comment.
