George Leventhal Hires Dan Reed

Just Up the Pike's Dan Reed has announced his hire by County Council Member George Leventhal. There is precedent for a MoCo blogger to get such a plum job: Mike Raia, who wrote Outside the Beltway, was snatched up by Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown as Deputy Press Secretary in 2007. (He has since been promoted to Press Secretary.) Mike ended his blog but Dan intends to keep JUTP going.

Leventhal is getting one of the best local writers in the county. Dan is getting access to one of the brainiest, and funniest, politicians in the state. Here's hoping the arrangement works out for both of them.
