Corbett's staff bound for more changes
July 17, 2013
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Gov. Tom Corbett is expected to
announce changes in his top staff as his campaign for a second term gears up
and his public support lags in in the polls.
Three people with knowledge of the decision-making process
tell The Associated Press that changes could be announced as early as this
week. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the Republican governor
hadn't made any such information public yet. An administration spokesman didn't
respond to requests for comment.
Privately, some advisers are concerned about Corbett's
sagging public support and his administration's communication with the public
and the Republican-controlled Legislature.
One Republican strategist who says he's not been told
officially about any changes, Charles Gerow, says it's normal for some
governor's staff to leave before re-election season is in full swing.
