Gitell moves up in the world
According to the Boston Herald, Boston Phoenix political reporter Seth Gitell has been hired to be Boston Mayor Tom Menino's new press secretary. But not before he may have changed his tune about how Menino runs Boston ["Good job hunting"]. Gitell once said Menino had "a cockiness bordering on arrogance" who has "coasted on luck for the last nine years." But a couple of years and a job opening later, Gitell wrote a flattering piece about the mayor, in which he praised Menino for having a "sharp political imagination."
Good luck Seth. The mayor can be a good guy; but he can also be a mean bastahd!
