PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – The former editor of the Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram has taken a post in Washington, D.C., as communications director for the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs.

The appointment of Jeannine Guttman was announced Wednesday by Maine Sen. Susan Collins, the committee’s ranking Republican. Collins said Guttman has tremendous experience both in media and in Washington, D.C., and cares about the critical issues that affect Mainers.

A career journalist, Guttman spent 15 years at the Press Herald. She previously worked at Gannett News Service, covered legislatures in California and Indiana, and was a congressional correspondent for States News Service.
