Ray McBerry‘s campaign has “released” Jenny Hodges from her duties on his campaign:
As of today, I have made a difficult but necessary personnel decision in our campaign and have released Jenny Hodges from her duties as campaign manager. For some time now, Jenny has been preoccupied with efforts that promote life and liberty but are not, in my judgment, the best use of her time and energy in running our campaign as campaign manager. While I have consistently given Jenny a larger role in this campaign than probably any other campaign manager has had in the history of Georgia politics, she feels that she should have an equal say in setting policy for the campaign and, in some areas, should have no oversight from me at all. And, although I love her dearly, I am certain that would be an unwise decision for this or any other campaign.
I have already expressed my thanks to Jenny and her husband Jon personally today and wish to do so publicly now, too. Jenny has been one of my very closest friends; there is nothing greater that I could say about her, truly. Also, though, she has sacrificed much of her time, energy, and family life selflessly for our campaign.
As I told Jenny earlier today, I know that she will continue our fight for liberty in other ways because I know her heart; and I trust that this separation from managing the campaign will free her to fully devote her time and energies into those efforts about which she is most passionate in the Cause. She was recently appointed vice-president of one of the largest pro-life organisations in America; and I am extremely proud of her.
Our volunteer director and a good friend of Jenny’s, Jerry DeMarce, will be leaving the campaign team, too; and, I hope, will continue to work with Jenny, as well, while she moves into a different role.
