NHTSA official to join political strategy firm
The communications director at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is leaving to join a new political firm founded by Obama campaign officials. In an email to NHTSA staff on Friday, Administrator David Strickland announced spokeswoman Lynda Tran's departure.
"For the past couple of years, I have had the pleasure and honor to have been befriended by, advised by and protected by one of the best professionals in government service," Strickland said.
The new firm is led by two former Obama for America officials, Mitch Stewart and Jeremy Bird, and describes itself as "helping clients build people-centered, data-driven and digitally sophisticated grassroots campaigns that achieve their strategic goals and change the world."
