Longtime Deeds Aide Departs for Hill
Creigh Deeds' campaign is going through a lot of changes as it heads into the general election.
We told you about his many new hires a couple days ago. Now word is out that his longtime aide Peter Jackson is leaving.
Jackson, who worked on Deeds' 2005 unsuccessful campaign for attorney general, had served as executive director of the Future Deeds political action committee, spokesman and senior advisor. Jackson was the guy with the institutional memory and his departure is surprising considering he was one of Deeds' longest serving aides.
On Monday, he will start a new job as communications director for the Congressional Oversight Panel on TARP. "Even though I'll be working on the other side of the Potomac, don't be surprised to see me putting up yard signs and helping out Creigh's campaign in whatever way I can,'' he wrote in an email to friends.yesterday.
