The news yesterday that former Administration Secretary Mike Smith will head up FairPoint Communication's Vermont operations may be good for both Mike and FairPoint.
The company desperately needs to gain some cred in Vermont and allay concerns at the Public Service Department and Public Service Board that it has what it takes to run Vermont phone lines. Smith is well-acquainted with the people whose concerns need allaying.
Meanwhile, Smith, after flirting with a quasi-career as a blogger and media critic, can, well, get back to business.
