Marty Walsh names new press secretary

Mayor Martin J. Walsh has named a new press secretary: Samantha Ormsby, who has served as a deputy press secretary, will replace Nicole Caravella, who left the mayor’s office last week for a job in the private sector.

Ormsby will oversee media relations for the mayor’s office and City Hall, and will work under Laura K. Oggeri, the mayor’s chief communications officer.

Ormsby previously worked as a communications coordinator of the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, and served as deputy press secretary for the gubernatorial campaign of Martha Coakley, the former attorney general.
