Greg Stumbo Hires Former Fletcher Staffer

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A former staffer in Gov. Ernie Fletcher's
administration is now working for Attorney General Greg Stumbo.
Billy Reed, a former sports columnist and member of the Kentucky
Journalism Hall of Fame, worked as spokesman for the Kentucky
Commerce Cabinet for a year and a half early in Fletcher's term,
resigning in 2005. Reed has been serving as a special assistant in
the attorney general's office since Sept. 26, spokesman Corey
Bellamy said.
"He is assigned to special projects," Bellamy said Thursday.
"He is currently working on the attorney general's biennial
report. That biennial report will go to the General Assembly as
required by statute."
Bellamy said the job is non-merit and will end when Stumbo
leaves office at the end of the year.
Reed, 64, said he joined the Stumbo staff to be of service to
Kentucky.
"At my age, if there's anything I have that's useful, or
anything I have to give back, I certainly want to do it," he said.
