Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz is losing some talent but gaining a lot as well. Press Secretary Juliemar Ortiz is leaving for Vineyard Wind and will assume the title Government and Community Liaison.
Coming in as Director of Communications is Sam Norton. A former New Haven Register reporter, she served as Deputy Communications Director at Attorney General Tong’s office and is well-known to the press corps from her work on the 2018 Lamont campaign.
Also joining the LG’s office is Jared Todd, who will serve Director of External Affairs. Readers of the Laurel may recognize his name as he penned many of these posts while working at McDowell Communications Group. Congrats to Juliemar, Sam, and Jared!
