Re: News Media Contact
Date: March 9, 2007
Effective immediately, all questions and requests from the media must be forwarded to central office for a response. Special Master Jay Kimbrough has named a special spokesperson, Jim Hurley, to handle media questions regarding our agency. We appreciate his assistance with the large number of media calls coming in to the Texas Youth Commission. At this time, it is necessary that the agency have a temporary spokesperson who is close enough to the investigation to respond to media questions accurately without jeopardizing any work currently underway by law enforcement agents.
Please continue to forward media requests to Tim Savoy. He will prioritize the requests and provide them to Mr. Hurley.
"Please keep my name confidential," says my source. "I don’t think they want us talking to you……"
Indeed. I bet they don't. I hope that doesn't deter y'all from doing so. :)
