JAMEY DUNN, the interim editor of Illinois Issues, is leaving her media job to become deputy director of communications for Comptroller SUSANA MENDOZA.
“She’s distinguished herself in her ability to analyze budget data and describe the impact on Illinois residents of state budget decisions,” said ABDON PALLASCH of Chicago, Mendoza’s director of communications who said he approached Dunn about the position. […]
Dunn said she wrote about state special funds some years ago, helping generate what has become a focus on budgetary issues.
Jamey is a darned good reporter.
The others who left are Ivan Moreno and Seth Perlman (AP), Kelsey Gibbs (WCIA), Ed Cross (WAND), Amanda Vinicky (WUIS) and Mike Riopell (Daily Herald).
