Feehery to run Crist's Washington office



Kerry Feehery, communications director to Sen. Mel Martinez, has been named the director of Gov. Charlie Crist's Washington office, where she'll serve as his chief lobbyist.

Feehery, who is well-known among Floridians in Washington because of her work for Connie Mack when he was a U.S. senator, will answer to Crist's deputy chief of staff Eric Eikenberg.

The appointment of Feehery follows several complaints from members of Florida's congressional delegation that the office was "un-communicative" when Jeb Bush was governor.

Feehery starts her new job on Tuesday.
