From the Morning Memo:

Jason Conwall, a familiar face around the state Capitol to reporters, is headed to the second floor.

Conwall is joining the executive chamber on Monday to serve as the deputy communications director for Albany in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office. He’ll be working with Rich Azzopardi to handle inquiries from the Legislative Correspondents Association.

He most recently worked as the senior director of communications for Empire State Development, serving as the chief spokesman for the agency and overseeing upstate communications since March 2012.

Before ESD, Conwall had spent two years with the press office of the Senate Democrats.

A Capital Region native, he’s a graduate of Hobart College in Geneva and Shenendehowa High School in Clifton Park.
