I knew C.J. when he was the political reporter over at the Star, and communicated with him last year during Giffords’ re-election campaign, and also throughout this tragic shooting of his boss and fellow aides on January 8, 2011. He exhibited a lot of compassion and competence during that horrible incident, and was a tireless advocate for accurate reporting about the Congresswoman and her injured staffers Ron Barber and Pam Simon. And I am sure he experienced a great deal of grief over the killing of young Congressional aide Gabe Zimmerman, as all of us did who knew Gabe.
Good luck C.J. on your new position.
