Lester Davis, chief spokesperson for Baltimore Mayor Bernard "Jack" Young, is joining SKDKnickerbocker next month as VP-public affairs in DC.
That move follows Young's defeat in the June primary. He took over the mayor's job following the resignation of Catherine Pugh in 2019 amid the scandal over her sales of a self-published children’s book series.
Davis worked with Young for more than a decade, which included his time as city council president.
Earlier, he was director of communications at HDSF, director of development at CORE Philly and a reporter at the Palm Beach Post.
