Skyler the New Cunningham

We’ve never entirely understood the communications director/press secretary distinction. Nonetheless, we bring you word that the Mayor has found that Ed knows enough Yeats to absorb Cunningham’s job:

“Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg announced today that Press Secretary Edward Skyler will also serve as the Administration’s Communications Director….

“‘I am pleased to appoint Ed Skyler as my Communications Director,’ Mayor Bloomberg said. ‘…I know that this dedicated public servant will continue to make every effort to make sure the City is well represented during my Administration.’

“…As Communications Director, Skyler will continue to run the Mayor’s daily communications operations and ensure an open dialogue between the public information offices at City agencies and the news media.”
