The New Dopp?

Even as Darren Dopp prepares to take a job with Patricia Lynch Associates , he's still listed on the state government's web site as the governor's communications director.

Which prompted the question, during a discussion I had with another reporter last night, of who’s going to replace him.

One candidate would seem to be the director of communications for the state Division of Budget, Jeffrey Gordon, who has been working in the governor's press office "on an interim basis" since Dopp's suspension from his job in July. (Which, by the way, marked the first time since Spitzer’s been in elected office that he didn’t have Dopp as his communications director.)

Any other ideas?

UPDATE: Gordon told me in an email that no changes to the press office have been made.
