Yesterday reader CS dropped a great nugget on our desk by asking how many media people the mayor has compared to policy people. The answer: Media 5, Policy 3.
The Mayor’s Office later qualified its answer by saying that members of its governmental affairs team were included under the policy umbrella.
CS, someone quite knowledgeable about the inner workings of government, responds:
Intergovernmental affairs folks are a long ways from policy analysts. But, if that’s their story, then so be it. …
So one wonders whether the attention is on substance or on spin.
