California political blogger resigns to head to Sacramento

frankrussoCongratulations to Frank Russo, the man behind one of California’s finest and most thorough political blogs, the California Progress Report, as he steps down as editor and publisher of the site to take on the role of chief of staff to newly elected Assemblymember Nancy Skinner.

Frank is passing the reigns of the blog to a non-profit, and explains the emotions of the bittersweet transition this way:

I am reminded of the words of advice of Scoop Nisker when he concluded his news report in the 70’s on KSAN radio: “If you don’t like the news, go out and make some of your own.” Shortly, with the good graces of Assemblymember Skinner, I’ll be doing that.
