My gossip chain is a-buzz today with a really juicy tidbit of maybe-news: Blue Oregon editor (and Staff Assistant to MultCo. Commish Jeff Cogen) Karol Collymore is considering adding her name to the list of those to be considered to replace retiring State Senator Margaret Carter.
Carter is resigning in order to take a newly-created post as deputy director of the Department of Human Services.
Collymore, 31, has worked for Commissioner Cogen since January of 2007. She has previously worked with NARAL, Basic Rights Oregon, and as a fundraiser for Supreme Ct Judge Virgina Linder.
Other names floated for the appointment are State Representative Chip Shields, State Represenative Tina Kotek and activist, former State Rep [thanks Jack] and Blue Oregon contributor Jo Ann Bowman.
