Played by Marlyne Afflack

With her eye on Mayor Tommy Carcetti's office, Nerese Campbell offers her clout with the ministers and influence on the council as a down payment toward her ambition. Carcetti assures her that his imminent run at the state house will free up the big chair, but Nerese, far too crafty to take anyone's word on a promise like that, continues to position herself as an indispensable liaison.
