Kwame Brown hires former Gray campaign press secretary Hughes

D.C. Council member Kwame Brown (D-At large) has hired Traci Hughes to oversee his communications strategy as he transitions into his new role as council chairman.

Hughes, who served as Mayor-elect Vincent C. Gray's (D) press secretary during the campaign, said she will help shape Brown's media outreach efforts and work on his Public Engagement Committee "to help structure communications for the office of the chairman."

Before joining the Gray campaign, Hughes was a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police Department. She started with Brown's transition team this week.

Brown announced two weeks ago that he plans to raise as much as $150,000 from private donors to pay for his transition.

Why have you not investigated that fact that ALL of Gray's campaign staff have been fired? Many got shoved out on election night.
