Gov. Rick Scott is making changes to his Capitol communications team as he ramps up a U.S. Senate bid.
With press secretary Lauren Schenone having gone to work on Scott’s Senate campaign, Mara Gambineri has left the Department of Health and joined the Governor’s communications office.
Also, Ashley Cook has come in from the Department of Corrections to work at “Plaza level.”
Taking Gambineri’s place at Health is Devin Galetta, formerly the department’s media and marketing manager.
We’re told Patrick Manderfield is taking Cook’s position at FDOC.
John Tupps remains communications director, and McKinley P. Lewis is still on board.
