DAVID DIX

Let's strategize for a second about Kuhn Management's senior adviser, David Dix.Before Dix was Kuhn's right-hand man, he was Dyer's.For most of Dyer's first year, Dix was his chief of staff.Dix helped orchestrate the Kuhn incentive deal.
But no one at City Hall liked him.Three days after the Kuhn deal went through, he resigned.Then he came back as a special assistant to the mayor, part-time work that paid generously , more than $10,000 a month.The city council still disliked Dix, so when they had an opportunity , when Dyer was suspended from office , they got ready to sack him.
...
Dix resigned before they got the chance, then went to work for Cameron Kuhn. (Convenient how that worked out.) Anyway, get that into a 30-second TV spot and you've got a campaign.
