I'm not paying much attention to politics right now, but BOR broke the story that John Sharp is being named to a panel appointed by Governor Perry to "study taxes to pay for public schools". As this Statesman article notes, that almost surely means he ain't running for Governor next year.
Last but not least, here's a statement on the announcement from longtime Sharp consultant Kelly Fero. I wish John Sharp much success in his new role, and I salute Governor Perry for coming to recognize the need for such a thing.
UPDATE: Here's Bell's statement on this.Posted by Charles Kuffner on September 21, 2005 to Election 2006 | TrackBack
