The best part of being involved in politics throughout the years has been the people that I have come to know. One of the best people I have ever had the privilege of working with was Ben Fry. I first met him when I was a fledgling County Chair in the Republican Party. Ben always took time to answer my questions and provide insight into situations. He has remained humble despite moving up the political and corporate ladders.
Ben is an extremely hard worker and has made a positive impact in each position he has held. I know he will do the same of he serves as Sen. David Perdue’s State Director. Best wishes Ben!
Press release from Sen. Perdue’s office:
U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today announced Ben Fry as his new State Director, who will oversee all state operations and manage field representatives across the state.
“Ben will do a fantastic job serving Georgians as our new State Director,” said Senator Perdue. “Ben has an extensive career helping Georgians and knows our state very well. He will be a valuable asset on our team as we work to tackle our nation’s toughest issues and get results for Georgians.”
“It is an honor to join Senator Perdue’s staff,” said Ben Fry. “He has assembled an incredible team, and I am thrilled to join them to help Georgians and advance our state’s priorities.”
Fry most recently served as Vice President of State Government Affairs at UnitedHealth Group. He previously held roles as Chief of Staff for Lt. Governor Casey Cagle, Special Assistant to then Governor Sonny Perdue, Executive Director of the Georgia Republican Party, and campaign manager for a gubernatorial campaign. Fry is a graduate of the University of Georgia and resides in Atlanta.
