Scott Jordan, who worked at Gambit from 1998-2003 before assuming the helm of the Independent Weekly in Lafayette, La., announced this morning that's he's leaving the paper (and journalism) to become communications director for the Louisiana Democratic Party:
"This falls elections, both statewide and national, promise to be historic," says Jordan. "And after 15 years of working as a journalist and editor, Ive decided I want to be directly involved in politics in a different role."
Congratulations, Scott. We look forward to giving you hell when necessary...and we hope never to have to write "Scott Jordan, spokesman for the state Democratic party, did not respond to a request for comment."
