Anita Dunn: White House Comms Director

April 30, 2009

Anita Dunn is taking over as an interim White House Communications Director.

090430_dunn_ap_297The powerful post is being vacated by Ellen Moran this week, and Obama officials want to fill it quickly.  Dunn will start working next week in an interim capacity until the president settles on a permanent replacement for Moran.   Dunn had initially avoided entering the administration with her fellow campaign veterans. But she has continued to serve as a key outside adviser, regularly joining strategy sessions with other members of Obama’s inner circle, and was an obvious choice for members of the close-knit West Wing.

I interned at her firm Squier Knapp Dunn back in 2000, and I recall she was always such a pleasant person to work for.  I’m glad to hear she’s taking over this position, albeit temporarily.
