Pinkston leaves Bredesen for Frist's SCORE
Will Pinkston (left), a Bredesen campaign operative turned chief policy wonk, is leaving the Administration later this month to join former U.S. Sen. Bill Frist's SCORE education-reform campaign organization. Pinkston is credited with much of the work on the General Assembly's just-passed education reform initiative, as well as for shepherding Bredesen's numerous clean-energy and solar initiatives. Earlier in his career, Pinkston worked as a reporter for The Tennessean and The Wall Street Journal, and did a stint with McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations.
