Nutter's spokesman to leave

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.”
