The top press aide for the House Republican caucus has announced she will resign at the end of this week.
Becky Blackburn spent less than a year as communications director for the House of Representatives. In an e-mail to House majority members, staff and the media, she announced Dec. 4 would be her final day.
“It has been my distinct pleasure and privilege working with you this past year, and I wish you success in meeting the continuing challenges of this great state,” she wrote.
Blackburn was hired by House Speaker Kirk Adams about 11 months ago to replace Barrett Marson.
