Wu taps fellow Warren campaign alum as campaign manager

Dan Murphy, an alumnus of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s 2012 campaign who would go on to work as a deputy press secretary on Congressman Michael Capuano’s Senate run in 2009, has signed on as campaign manager of South Ender Michelle Wu’s City Council bid.

Rachel Schwarzman, who worked on Joseph Kearns Goodwin’s unsuccessful state Senate campaign, is Wu’s finance director, the campaign said Tuesday.

Murphy, an Emerson College graduate, was a political consultant to Sen. Warren. Wu, who also worked on Warren’s Senate campaign, announced in December that she would be throwing her hat into the City Council At-Large ring.

The four incumbents – Stephen Murphy, Ayanna Pressley, John Connolly and Felix Arroyo – are running for reelection this year.

Wu has raised over $48,000 so far, the campaign said in a Tuesday release announcing the hires.
