State House News via David Bernstein (via my hairdresser’s sister’s best friend Marsha, etc.) says Nancy Fernandez Mills is out as Patrick’s communications director.
Can’t say I’m surprised. I don’t know much about the work she did day to day, but I did notice two things:
1. She botched a press briefing a few days after the ICE raid in New Bedford, saying that the governor had been unaware of the raid when the governor had been saying different from the get-go;
2. The governor’s podcasts, presented as Mills “interviewing” the governor, have been not so exciting — mostly nothing you couldn’t learn from a press release. They might be more exciting if they used them to really drop some serious 411 on us … I don’t know, something provocative. But right now they’re kind of tame.
Anyone know who’s getting the job?
