Anyone remember Andi Pringle? Tapped by Mayor Vince Gray to help turn around his communications team, she lasted all of ten days as deputy chief of staff after bring tripped up for voting in a District election while living in Maryland.

Pringle’s position has been open since early September. Now comes word from multiple Wilson Building sources that the mayor has settled on replacement for Pringle. Drumroll please: It’s Sheila Bunn, the current chief of staff to Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton. (At least, if LL’s sources are correct.)

Bunn, whose online resume shows that she attended Benjamin Banneker High School and American University, did not return calls seeking comment or confirmation.

No word yet on when the official announcement is coming. It’s probably a safe bet that the Gray administration is giving new meaning to the word “thorough” while vetting Bunn’s background, as the mayor can ill-afford another embarrassing episode related to his hiring abilities.
