Shoe shiner Eddie Wright among Senate layoffs

Shoe shine man Eddie Wright, a familiar figure in the Capitol who has polished the shoes at the South Entrance for 22 years, has been laid off because of budget cuts. A shoe shine stand has existed in the Capitol for a century. In 1992, when Wright took it over, the job was private. A decade later, former Senate Leader John Burton made Wright a Senate staffer and put him on the official payroll, according to the Capitol Morning Report, which first reported Wright’s situation.
