Today, the Democratic Party of Georgia announced new hires and staff changes as the 2022 election cycle heats up.
Krystal Spencer has been hired as Deputy Organizing Director for Distributed Organizing. DPG has also hired three organizers through the Democratic National Committee’s Campaign Readiness Project, a train-to-hire bootcamp pipeline. The Distributed Organizing Team will build critical supporter and volunteer infrastructure, utilizing state-of-the-art distributed organizing methods that helped secure President Biden and Vice President Harris’s historic win in Georgia last year.
Additionally, Rebecca Galanti has been promoted to Communications Director, and James Jelin has been promoted to Digital Director.
These hires mark a continuation of DPG’s efforts following the historic 2020 election cycle to expand and strengthen Georgia Democrats’ full-time permanent staff for organizing, fundraising, digital, communications, voter protection, and more.
“As we enter a critical election cycle, DPG is in a stronger position than ever before. Our new distributed organizing program will ensure we are talking to voters across the state early and often, and we will continue to scale up all of our programs to build upon our past victories as we head into 2022 and beyond,” said Scott Hogan, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “From four full-time staff in the 2019 off year to more than twenty staff now, DPG is experiencing unprecedented growth as Democratic enthusiasm soars in Georgia. We look forward to building out our team even further to make sure we have the resources and talent to defend Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock’s seat, defeat Brian Kemp, preserve our U.S. House majority, make inroads in the state legislature, and elect Democrats up and down the ballot statewide.”
