As my readers know, 26 days ago I e-mailed the Governor’s media office asking, “in light of Mark Sanford’s situation, what is the policy of the Governor in releasing his schedule? Where can it be accessed, when is it released, etc.?”
I received a response the next day from Strickland spokeswoman Amanda Wurst stating, “We generally release the governor’s schedule of public events on Fridays for the upcoming week.”
I promptly responded, “would it be possible for me to be added to the list that receives this announcement? Also, if there are changes to the schedule, how is that updated?”
I had heard that the Governor has a bad habit of changing his schedule at the last minute, and I figured it was in the public’s interest to know where the Governor is going.
After all, we can’t have him unexpectedly heading down to South America. Ok, maybe we can, but I digress…
After yet another follow-up from me, today we are now at DAY 25 of no response from the Governor’s office.
What kinda top secret stuff is Stricktaft getting into that the public isn’t allowed to know where he goes? Even more annoying, does the Governor’s media team not have a spare 30 seconds to respond to a blogger?
Or are they still ticked at me for calling them out on blocking me from following the Governor on twitter?
