Kaine Appoints New Communications Director

Anita Kumar

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) has hired Lynda Tran to serve as his communications director for his final year in office.

Tran, 30, has worked for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) for eight years, most recently as assistant director of communications. She has also served as national communications director for SEIU's property services division and led numerous advocacy campaigns.

"I am happy to have someone with Lynda's skills and experience to guide my communications team," Kaine said. "The ability of my administration to effectively express solutions to challenges is of paramount importance, and I am confident that Lynda will maintain the high standards expected by the public and the media."

Tran replaces Delacey Skinner, who left recently to join Terry McAuliffe's campaign for governor. Tran will begin work immediately.
