Governor Corbett Will Have New Messengers When Fall Session Begins



Governor Corbett may not be changing his message as he shifts into re-election mode, but for the first time in his nearly three-year tenure he's bringing in new messengers.
 
The Republican governor has appointed a new chief of staff and a new communications director -- both seasoned political operatives who worked for Governor Ridge. He also plans to name a press secretary in an apparent effort to bolster his relationship with the news media.
 
The shakeup comes on the heels of a legislative session that failed to yield a single victory among Corbett's top three initiatives -- transportation funding, liquor privatization and changes in the public pension system -- and polls that show his public support sagging.
