Doheny signs on to YRC board

Congressional candidate Matt Doheny is broadening his portfolio: He'll serve on the board of YRC Worldwide, a Fortune 500 holding company for transportation brands including Yellow Transportation and Roadway.

Mr. Doheny founded North Country Capital earlier this year, which invests in companies looking to start up or expand (an attempt, in my mind, at neutering a Dem argument when he lost the race in 2010 that he's never created a job in the north country).

Mr. Doheny will run for Congress in 2012, but he's not yet talking to the press or raising any money for himself (he hasn't been 100 percent in the dark: He has made appearances at community events, is paying a staff, and been generous with his own money for Republicans, Conservatives and Indies, all lines that he will seek).

He's also involved in a few community projects, like the Flower Memorial Library board.

If you go to that news release from YRC, by the way, you'll see another big name: Harry Wilson, the Republican who was very nearly elected state comptroller in 2010.
