Gov. Jim Douglas is expected to announce tomorrow who will do the talking for him now that Jason Gibbs will be out talking to the trees.
Gubernatorial staffer Heidi Tringe says it isn't her. She will, however, have the new title of secretary of civil and military affairs, a ceremonial title Gibbs has most recently claimed.
Perhaps that means Douglas brings someone new into his cozy circle or reaches from just outside the circle.
It probably doesn't matter to anyone else, besides Douglas himself and us in the media. He was pretty much lock-step in sync with Gibbs these last six years. I can recall maybe two or three times when Gibbs got in trouble with Douglas for saying something he should have.
It's got to be an adjustment to have someone new telling the world what you think, but Douglas is not the sort for reflection.
