Biographical or historical data
  • The Press Office is a division of the Office of the Governor in the Executive Branch of Virginia state government. Under the Director of Communications, the Press Secretary, the Deputy Press Secretary and various press assistants were responsible for directing and facilitating the Governor's interactions with the media. The Press Office created press releases and made them publicly available, gathered and analyzed newspaper and magazine articles and television coverage pertaining to Governor Warner and his administration, and maintained a file of photographs taken and collected by the Governor's Photographer that document Governor Warner's public appearances. The Press Office was also responsible for making the Governor's public schedule, press releases, executive orders, proclamations, and selected speeches available online. Additional information about this office and links to the aforementioned items are available in the archived website files of the Governor's Office, (2005-2006). They can be found by searching the Library of Virginia's catalog using "Governor Mark R. Warner" as the subject.
  • In January 2002, Governor Mark R. Warner (2002-2006), chose Paul J. Reagan to serve as Director of Communications. In this position, Reagan was responsible for the Press Office, the Office of Constituent Services, and for the preparation of the Governor's speeches. Prior to Reagan's appointment, Governor Warner chose Ellen Qualls as his Press Secretary. Later, Kevin Hall was selected to fill the role of Deputy Press Secretary. Hall took over as Press Secretary in April 2005 when Qualls became the spokesperson for Governor Warner's political action committee (PAC) Forward Together. Michaele L. White served as Governor's Photographer.
