Perdue's Chief Of Staff Leaving

North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue's top aide and the manager of her winning 2008 campaign is stepping down as her chief of staff.

Perdue announced Thursday that Zach Ambrose will leave the job in the coming weeks. She says Ambrose is an invaluable friend and adviser. Ambrose told Perdue's senior staff of his decision Thursday morning.

Perdue spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson says Ambrose wanted more time with his family and to try new things after essentially being on call 24 hours a day for Perdue for the past five years.

Ambrose became Perdue's chief of staff when she was lieutenant governor in 2005 and later became campaign manager. He also helped Perdue assemble her Cabinet before she took the oath of office in January 2009.

    This is what she can run on next election. This hightest unemployment ever in the state, she has raised taxes the most ever, our schools are in the worst shape ever,most of the leadership in Raleigh either are in prision, going to prision, or just got out of prison. I guess she is the governor of the people.

    where are these progressive socialists coming from? America needs to realize her slackness by allowing degenerates in power who've emabraced progressivism, socialism & communism! google up: Discoverthenetworks-George Soros-Obama-Hillary and see where the disease is coming from. George Soros is Obama's mentor which pretty much stays at his side promoting & forcing his communistic/socialistic agenda's on America. See how long the Clinton's have been working with many lib's in getting a World Tax system set up for all of humanity. They want to eliminate our constitution & bill of rights because WE pose the biggest threat to their socialist new world order plan. This isn't a myth and has been in process by G7 & G20 nations, UN, Club of Rome, Bildeberger group, Rothschild banking empire & The European Union for many years. You'll find this most facinating to say the least. Their goals are: spread the wealth, control & re-establish law & all nations into 10 regions. You won't see this on CNN.

    Hey, maybe she is having an affair with John Edwards. He found out and got out....well, this is the same info progressives post on conservatives, remember Palin? How about, when you see Easley politics and the party in NC, he knows he will go down with this ship....handcuffed to a pipe.

    I probably would have left as well. She thinks she can tell people what to do her way and boss everyone else around. She is a fraud and a disgrace to this state.
