Jay Carson, Hillary Clinton’s press secretary during her run for President is moving to the greener pastures of Shangri-La…as VP for policy and business development. Carson, who came off in the media as really burnt out towards the end of the fight for the Nomination.
Shangri-La is the music and production company run by playboy Steve Bing, which recently branched out in to LEED-certified construction. The first project was the ultragreen Hanger 25 at the Bob Hope airport, 110% solar powered, and according to the release, equipped with big ass fans to keep temperatures down.
LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) construction is a good place to be. It’s predicted and likely that many new Government buildings will be built to greener code during the Obama administration.
More on Carson’s old life is coming next year: Leoardo DiCaprio is playing a character based on him in the movie version of the play Farragut North.[via LA Observed]
