Rahm dips into Obama campaign: Adding Clo Ewing to p.r. team

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Mayor Rahm Emanuel is beefing up his communications team, adding Obama campaign veteran Clo Ewing to work on "strategic planning" to further bolster his public relations initiatives.

Ewing was director of constituency press for the Obama campaign, handling media reporting on Jews, gays, women and other niche groups. She is a former producer at Harpo Productions.

Emanuel appears to be taking an organization cue from the White House, where the strategic planning operation works on longer term message management and story placement, not involved so much in dealing with daily press issues.

Sarah Hamilton is City Hall's Director of Communications.

UPDATE from Hamilton

"She is joining the Emanuel Administration as Chief of Strategic Planning on the policy team (not the communications team)."
