Vice President Kamala Harris can’t keep anybody on staff. According to recent reports, the Veep’s Deputy Chief of Staff Michael Fuchs will leave the Administration next month. Fuchs wrote an email regarding the departure.
“It’s been the honor of a lifetime to serve in this administration, working for the Vice President and President on behalf of the American people,” Fuchs wrote in an email to fellow staffers. “Fifteen months later, it’s almost difficult to recall the magnitude of the challenges we faced when we came in, from an unprecedented pandemic to historically difficult economic circumstances. And it is thanks to the work of this administration – and all of you – that our country has had such success in tackling these challenges and turning things around.”
“The Vice President is grateful for Michael’s tireless work, leadership, and the many miles he traveled domestically and internationally as we lifted up families and strengthened relationships with allies abroad. Our entire team will miss Michael as he begins this next chapter,” Harris communications director Jamal Simmons said in a statement.
Harris has been hemorrhaging key staff members, including speech writers and foreign communications directors. Fuchs is just the latest in a long line to leave the Vice President’s office behind.
