Jack Johnson says he plans to enter the private sector after leaving office

After months of skirting questions about possible political ambitions after he leaves office later this year, County Executive Jack B. Johnson (D) said Friday it is "safe to say" he will enter the private sector.

"I don't think I'll be running for anything right now," said Johnson, who is term limited, adding that he planned to "go into private life for a while, do some things I probably didn't have the opportunity to do."

Asked what line of work he might pursue, Johnson did not provide specifics. He said he "talked to one group," but had largely steered clear of discussions with organizations because of the potential for conflicts of interest while he is still in office.

"I think it's more prudent to have five months ... making sure there are no improprieties," he said.

Everything else but "good riddance" was unnecessary.

Which developer, health care, law firm, consultant who got paid off in his administration do you think Jack will go to work for? How do we term limit corruption and the evil people who promote it?
