You have to love the insider machine. anyone who thinks Fisher is not the next Abramson is in for a rude awakening. While perusing my regular sites, yep Joe Arnold you are one of my regular visits, I saw this post: Poynter leaving Abramson for Fischer WHAS11.com WHAS11.com Louisville Blogs WHAS11.com News for Louisville, Kentucky.
I saw the healdine and had to read it again.
Abramson's favorite overpaid spin machine spokesman Chris Poynter is leaving the Abramson machine to work for Greg Fisher as his overpaid spokesman. Of course the plan is for Fisher to win and Poynter never misses a beat as official overpaid spokesperson for the Mayor. Kind of looks like that is a new tag in the making isn't it?
We already had the "Mayor for life" in Abramson why not a "Mayoral Spokesman for life" in Chris Poynter?
But I digress.
Interestingly enough though Poynter is moving on ahead of Abramson leaving after all their years together. One more leaving the ship.
According to Joe, "The move would set Poynter up to return to City Hall as Fischer's chief spokesman, but Poynter would not comment that far in the future.
Poynter says it was "very easy to get on board" the Fischer campaign. He says Fischer's job creation record and understanding of business makes him a "dynamic" choice for Metro Mayor."
Poynter needs to check some things out apparently. But the biggest news I got from the story is this:
Poynter disclosed that Fischer is looking for a campaign manager. Former field director Lisa Tanner left the campaign almost two months ago, according to spokeswoman Rande Swann.
Swann served as Chief of Staff of the primary campaign, but tells me her last day as paid staff, as planned was May 31. She plans on volunteering some time on a limited basis until after her daughter's wedding in September.
Fisher has been without a campaign manager for almost two months? His campaign manager quit and his Chief of Staff resigned on May 31? Not only did his Chief of Staff drop down to a lowly unpaid spokesperson she has now been replaced by an overpaid spokesperson in Poynter.
Anyone see a problem with Fisher's management style. One would certainly think that during a general election doing without a campaign manager for two months is very telling. Why has he not hired someone new?
There is trouble in the Fisher camp and apparently his management skills are in dire need of upgrading. Interesting too that his campaign leadership, and both women, who helped him win handily in the primary are now out of a job. Does Fisher have a problem with women in power?
If he cannot even keep a simple campaign staff together long enough to get elected how will he govern Louisville?
