Darren Allen is no longer roaming the halls of the legislature on behalf of the Vermont Press Bureau. Here's the latest post on the Hall Monitor blog:
A note from the editors...
January 23, 2007
You may have noticed Darren Allen's absence from the Halls over the last couple of days, and we want to explain.
Allen,who started this blog two legislative sessions ago as this paper'sfirst venture into the blogosphere, has decided to leave his post aschief of the Vermont Press Bureau to become the communications directorfor the Agency of Natural Resources.
He will start his new job-- where he will be responsible for letting the public (and us) in onwhat the more than 600 people in ANR are doing -- on Feb. 5.
Whilewe don't know the future of the Hall Monitor -- or who will roam thehalls and let you all in on the gossip, intrigue and insider tidbits --we do know that you can continue to expect the best political reportingin the state from the Vermont Press Bureau's Louis Porter.
We wish Darren well as he jumps over to the other side.
Odum at Green Mountain Daily has started a discussion about Allen's departure. I started to comment on it this morning, but I need more time to organize my thoughts. I'm definitely sad to see Darren go.
