Tricia Enright, a veteran of several political campaigns, has been hired to manage Democrat Michael Nutter's bid for mayor in November.
"She fits into the quirky personalities we have here," Nutter campaign spokeswoman Melanie Johnson said. She added, "Tricia understands we are running an election and are in competition with another candidate."
Enright served in the fall as Gov. Rendell's campaign manager. Among her previous jobs, she was campaign communications director for former presidential candidate Howard Dean. Enright began working for the Nutter campaign July 30.
