Nutter has new message manager

Veteran public relations consultant and former Rendell administration official Kevin Feeley is now working for Mayor Nutter's re-election campaign.

Feeley, president of Bellevue Communications, has most recently been in the public eye for his work on behalf of the Board of Revision of Taxes, whom he represented up until last summer.

For Nutter, Feeley said he would be helping craft the campaign's "message," with a particular focus on highlighting what Feeley considers to be an impressive record of accomplishments that have been overshadowed by budget trouble.

Feeley was clear that he would not be shaping the public image of the administration itself, but rather just the campaign.

"I’m not sitting around in a City Hall office. This is just broad, almost conceptual work," said Feeley.
