There’s quite a workplace cocktail being mixed in St. Louis County.
Mark Rubin, an assistant county prosecutor, is announcing today he’s running for St. Louis County attorney. That means he has to run against Melanie Ford, the current county attorney who is also Rubin’s boss.
How does one do that and keep one’s job?
I’ll try to find out later today.
Rubin is making the announcement at news conferences this afternoon in Virginia and Duluth.
In 2006, Ford beat a 28-year incumbent by just 88 votes out of more than 80,000 that were cast.
