From a press release:
Atlanta, GA –Secretary of State-elect Brad Raffensperger announced his appointment of Ms. Jordan Fuchs as Deputy Secretary of State. The Deputy Secretary of State is one of the most important non-elected positions in Georgia since the Secretary of State’s office is responsible for elections, corporation registrations, business and occupational licensing and securities. “Tricia and I have worked with Jordan closely for years,” said Raffensperger. “She is fully dedicated to achieving the goals outlined during the campaign, and given the tasks we have ahead of us there is no one else I would rather have leading our office.”
Ms. Fuchs managed Raffensperger’s campaigns for both State Legislature and for Secretary of State.
“I have watched Jordan thrive in the high pressure and highly visible role leading a large organization,” continued Raffensperger. “I have the utmost confidence that she can successfully direct the efforts of this office, and achieve the goals upon which I campaigned. I am confident she will work hard for the people of Georgia.”
Prior to her service with Raffensperger, Jordan Fuchs served as Vice President of Landmark Communications, a leading political consulting and public relations firm based in Alpharetta. Prior to joining Landmark Communications, Fuchs worked in Washington, D.C. in the Congress and U.S. Foreign Policy Program with the Council on Foreign Relations and on Capitol Hill in the office of U.S. Representative Rob Woodall. Fuchs earned a B.A.J. in Public Relations from the Henry Grady School of Journalism and a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Georgia.
“I am thankful and excited for the opportunity to serve the people of Georgia,” said Ms. Fuchs. “We have many challenges ahead and we are building a team that can meet those challenges head-on. I believe that all Georgians will be proud of the team that will help us continue to be the best state in the nation in which to do business, raise a family, and build communities of which we can all be proud.”
Raffensperger will be sworn in January 14, 2019. Ms. Fuchs will assume the duties of Deputy Secretary of State on that date.
