Zach Patton, our colleague and 13th Floor blogmeister is out today. Which is the only reason why I'll get away with posting this item from a blog read by DC media insiders, nominating Zach as one of 2007's "Hottest Media Types" in the esteemed category of "Male, Off Air."
Ah, summer in DC. Good thing there's nothing serious going on for the media to fixate on. Like a war or something.
Anyway, you can vote for Zach here. Although I'm sure he'd prefer if you didn't.
Written and compiled by staff writers and editors, GOVERNING View is an on-the-ground, and sometimes behind-the-scenes, look at the topics we're covering in print and online. From notes on what's up in statehouses, county courthouses and city halls, to encounters with people, places and things, GOVERNING View is a window into the side of state and local government you don't always see.
