Delacey Skinner Leaving Kaine Administration
Delacey Skinner, who has served as Gov. Timothy M. Kaine's communications director since he took office in 2006, will be leaving the administration at the end of the month.
Skinner said she is considering a number of future job opportunities, including joining Terry McAuliffe's potential campaign for the Democratic nomination for governor. Skinner has a close working relationship with Mo Elleithee, a senior strategist for McAuliffe. But Skinner cautions she has not made any decision about her next step and is also considering other potential opportunities in government or politics or the private sector.
Skinner has been with Kaine since his 2005 campaign for governor, when she served as his press secretary. Prior to joining Kaine, Skinner worked for Americans Coming Together, a liberal advocacy group, in New Hampshire during the 2004 presidential campaign. She also worked on Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean's unsuccessful presidential campaign in late 2003 and early 2004.
Skinner has been a key member of Kaine's inner-circle, helping to direct both his policy and political goals. Kaine is expected to name a new communications director before the General Assembly session begins on Jan. 14.
