Allred names campaign staff

Keith Allred, Democratic candidate for governor of Idaho, has named former U.S. Attorney for Idaho Betty Richardson as his campaign manager. Richardson heads a Democratic Party candidate recruitment committee that helped persuade Allred, formerly a nonpartisan citizen activist, to become the Democratic standard-bearer. Allred also named these staffers: Shea Andersen, former editor of the Idaho Mountain Express and Boise Weekly, will be his press secretary; Democratic fundraiser Suzanne Gore will be his finance director; former Obama campaign state director Kassie Cerami will be his statewide volunteer coordinator; and Matt Compton, who managed T.J. Thompson’s successful Boise city council campaign last year, will be director of operations.

Allred previously named his campaign’s honorary co-chairs, former Gov. Cecil Andrus and former GOP Sen. Laird Noh; and his treasurer, former state Rep. Margaret Henbest, D-Boise.
