New York City Mayor Bill deBlasio has named Andrea Hagelgans director of agency communications to handle his ties with various municipal units and his cabinet.
She was at Camino Public Relations and handled Planned Parenthood's high-profile response to the decision of Susan G. Komen’s Foundation to pull funding. Chelsea-based Camino works for non-profit working on progressive issues.
Earlier, Hagelgans was deputy press secretary for NYC’s campaign finance board.
The mayor said in a statement that he expects the new hire "will help our cabinet and agencies clearly communicate this administration’s vision and policies to the people of NYC."
