The name “Lisa Brown” has popped up in the recently released list of Obama’s transition team, and at least one diarist on Daily Kos has identified her as our Lisa Brown, Washington’s State Senate Majority Leader.
Huh. You’d think that would be bigger local news… something she’d want to promote a bit… so I called state Senate Dems communications director Jeff Reading, and he says that’s the first he ever heard of the story.
So while it would have been cool, apparently not. Too bad.
Sen. Brown responds:
I wish it was me, but alas, I haven’t heard from them. The closest I have been to the campaign (besides endorsing early) was meeting the President-elect in Seattle and meeting and introducing Michelle Obama in Spokane.
Yeah, well, that’s closer to Obama than I ever got.
