WASHINGTON -- US Senator Scott Brown continues to fill out his new staff, formally announcing this afternoon that he has hired Colin Reed to be his press secretary.
Reed, who has been working for several days in Brown's temporary Senate office (and has been eagerly awaiting a Blackberry and an official email address), is originally from Norwell, Mass., and most recently was deputy press secretary for the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
“Colin is a talented communicator with good relationships in both Massachusetts and Washington, and I am proud to have him on my team,” Brown said in a statement. “As a Bay State native, he understands the issues facing Massachusetts, and will be a great asset as we serve the people of the Commonwealth.”
Brown's press shop also includes Gail Gitcho, who is his communications director. She previously worked for the Republican National Committee and for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.
