From the gov's office:

Governor Donald L. Carcieri today announced that he has appointed Newport resident Amy Kempe as his new press secretary and spokesperson.

Kempe replaces Jeff Neal, who announced his intention to step down in March after more than five years. “I’m very pleased that Amy has agreed to take on this important role,” Governor Carcieri said.  “Amy boasts over ten years of public relations experience in Rhode Island and already has strong connections with a number of reporters in the state and region. With that experience in mind, I believe Amy will do a terrific job of working with the local media to convey my views and public policy positions to the people of Rhode Island.”

Since 2003, Amy Kempe has served as Vice President/Team Leader of Regan Communications Group, the 10th largest public relations firm in New England.  Her client list has included Newport Grand, Dunkin’ Donuts, and the Rhode Island Hospitality and Tourism Association, among others.  From 2000 to 2003, Kempe served as a Senior Account Manager for Regan Communications and was responsible for opening its Providence office.

From 1997 to 2000, Kempe served as a public relations supervisor for GTECH, where she was responsible for writing and distributing all corporate information.  In 1996, she served as finance and communications director for the Rick Wild for Congress Committee, and previously worked for the Kevin Vigilante for Congress Committee. 

Kempe earned a Master of Arts in Modern European History from the University of Rhode Island and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University at Albany – State University of New York.
