Russell Schweiss Signs Off
Russell Schweiss, Gov. Jeb Bush's senior press secretary, is leaving Tallahassee. Schweiss, quoted in countless news articles, said Friday he had taken a job as director of public relations for Harcourt Assessment in San Antonio.
He could not resist ribbing a few reporters. "I could list off everyone's quirks and agitate the entire press corps, but I guarantee you it would all be in good fun," he wrote in an e-mail. "...All kidding aside, I appreciate that you all have always treated me with respect and I hope you feel I've done the same for you."
With Bush leaving office after eight years, Schweiss is only one of many looking for new employment.
