It’s two weeks before a BIG election, and I’ve got MAIL from the Office of the Speaker of the North Carolina House:
Dear Caucus Members –
I hope that you are all doing well. The Speaker wanted to let you know about a few staffing changes:
· Joseph Kyzer has been hired this week as the Speaker’s Director of Communications. Joseph joins us from Americans for Prosperity and previously worked with Senators Goolsby and Lee in the NC Senate. He is a strong writer and communicator and will be available to help you with your communications needs. We look forward to your meeting and working with Joseph. Joseph’s mobile number is (202) 236-5498 and his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
· Lindsey Dowling moved over to the Speaker’s staff as a policy advisor after Rep. Hager left. You all know Lindsey and how helpful she has been to the caucus. She will work on various policy matters and continue to represent our office with external parties.
As always, please call us if we can be of any assistance to you. If you’re going to be in town please stop by or let us know if we can come see you or help you in any way. Thank you for your continued efforts and for your service to our great State.
Clayton D. Somers

Gee. Considering the precariousness of this year’s election, I don’t know if I’d put all my marbles into working for the House Republican leadership just yet. There IS a real possibility the Democrats could take the lower chamber back. (If that happens, methinks Rep. Moore’s payroll will shrink dramatically.) Even if they hold the majority, it’s not a safe assumption that Tim Moore will be speaker for the next session.
