Murphy Leaves Carrion for L.M.D.C.

Adolfo Carrion’s communications director, Mike Murphy, is leaving for a job with the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation.

While it’s a loss for Carrion, it’s something of a win that Murphy wasn’t hired by another city comptroller candidate.

That’s more or less what happened with John Collins, who was hired by Anthony Weiner, a likely mayoral candidate.

Collins had recently worked for two possible mayoral candidates before going to Weiner: Christine Quinn and Betsy Gotbaum (who had been considered a longshot candidate until this interview put that notion to rest).

Here’s the email Murphy sent to friends:

Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be leaving The Borough
President’s Office at the end of the week. It was a great year and a
half!!!

I have accepted a job as the new Press Secretary for the Lower
Manhattan Development Corporation. I look forward to working with
everyone in my new capacity. I will start at LMDC on next Tuesday. I
can be reached at this email ### (once I get my new
email I will send it around) and on my cell 646-###-####. Thanks talk
to you soon and remember only 48 more days to Opening Day of MLB….GO
RED SOX!!!!
