This email just came into my inbox.
It’s from Rick Blalock, a longtime media/public relations player in Atlanta who most recently has been with the Lisa Borders mayoral campaign.
Don’t know the story behind the story, but personnel changes are not that unusual in the ups and downs of the political scene.
Here’s Rick Blalock’s email:
This is to inform you that effective today, I am an no longer the communications manager for the Lisa Borders for Mayor campaign, also known as “Borders for Atlanta .”
I know there have been many news-media inquiries regarding several recent high-level resignations from the campaign. I cannot address those issues, as I am no longer affiliated with Borders for Atlanta .
Please, contact, either the new communications director Liz Flowers or the new deputy communications director/manager Whitney LuAllen at for all future inquiries.
However, as for other matters and our ongoing collegial relationship as members of the media, please, feel free to call me anytime.
