Patrick announces staff

Several annoucements on staff just now from Deval Patrick:

--Nancy Fernandez Mills, Deputy Chief of Staff/Communications Director. Mills has a media background and no readily apparent governmental experience, so chalk up one outsider.

--Richard Chacon, Director of Policy and Cabinet Affairs. Chacon was communications director on the Patrick campaign, and was a fine journalist at one time.

--Kyle Sullivan, Press Secretary. Sullivan is poached from house speaker Sal DiMasi's staff -- hey, steal from the best!

--Cyndi Roy, Deputy Press Secretary. She's been the communications director for the Mass. Democratic Party, and then the spokesperson for the Patrick transition (and before that a reporter), so you figured she was going to fit into this team somewhere.

--Mike Morris, Director of Governmental Affairs. Morris comes from Treasurer Tim Cahill's office, so he knows the ins and outs of the State House.

--Christy Mach, Director of Scheduling. Mach was on the campaign team, joining up after serving as campaign manager for Andrea Silbert.
