Abdul Reporting Melina Kennedy Hired Campaign Manager

Abdul is reporting that Melina Kennedy has hired former Organizing for America State Director Nick Buis to run her mayoral campaign. We hear Buis recently ran Baron Hill’s campaign so that would give him a 1-1 record in Indiana.
It looks like Buis spent some time in Iowa for Obama as a county field organizer in 2007 and some of his Hoosiers for Hill friends nominated him for a grassroots organization award. Our favorite part:
“Only 45% of the district has cable TV. Most of the district does not use broadband Internet. In order to get our message out into the most rural parts of our district he commissioned a Burma Shave sign campaign.”
Sounds like that worked out really well.
All kidding aside, this seems to be a decent hire and we welcome him the campaign trail.
