Kottkamp’s Political Decision

July 6th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Lt. Governor Jeff Kottkamp has been more visible in recent weeks, touring several state agencies, including the state agency for workforce innovation today. Kottkamp was expected to announce he would seek the Attorney Generals post by the fourth of July. Now that the holiday has come and gone, the Lt. Governor says a decision could still be two weeks away.

“Well we’ll find out. The governor and I were very focused on our post-session work, Kottkamp said. We wanted to make sure, I personally wanted to make sure, that we got done with the budget, all the bills that had landed on the governor’s desk, before going forward with an announcement. As you know, we’ve finally done that, I think last week we got the last bill off the governor’s desk. So you can expect an announcement in the next couple of weeks.”

The Attorney Generals job is becoming vacant because the current office holder, Bill McCollum, is running to replace Kottkamps boss, Governor Charlie Crist.
