Mayor Nutter's budget director, Steve Agostini, is leaving the administration at the end of the month to take a Washington job as chief financial officer for the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
Agostini is the third signficiant Nutter aide in the last 10 days to announce a departure.
Press secretary Doug Oliver intends to leave in October for a senior vice president position at the Philadelphia Gas Works. And MaryAnn Tierney, the city's director of emergency operations, is headed to a regional post with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Maybe the departures are an indication of an improving economy?

Douglas Oliver, who has served as Mayor Nutter’s primary spokesman for the last 2.5 years, officially announced Monday that he is leaving City Hall to become senior vice president of marketing and communications at Philadelphia Gas Works. He will take the new job in October. It comes with a big pay increase, from $114,000 to $160,000. At a Monday press conference, Nutter praised Oliver for creating a “first-class press organization.” The mayor offered few details about Oliver’s replacement, saying only that he hoped to find a new press secretary “sooner rather than later.”
