Sam Adams' director of communications, Wade Nkrumah, has resigned. As far as this reporter is aware, it's the first resignation from Adams' office—I asked Nkrumah yesterday at 5pm if anybody had resigned, and he said "no." Adams' office is not commenting on the departure, which leaves an $80,000 position vacant for someone with a specialty in communications. The O and WW had this first, with the O's photograph, ironically showing former Mercury news editor Amy Ruiz in a photo from November, "interviewing" Adams, while Nkrumah looks on in the background. No word, yet, on whether Ruiz intends to apply for Nkrumah's old job.
