DAVE BLANCHETTE, a state government veteran who is now deputy director of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, will become Gov. PAT QUINN’s Springfield spokesman as of March 18.
“With his remarkable command of Illinois history and communications expertise, Dave will make our team stronger and effectively communicate information the public needs to know,” said BROOKE ANDERSON, Quinn’s press secretary. “Serving as Springfield spokesman for Governor Quinn, who himself is a history buff, is a perfect fit for Dave.”
