Fresh off Q1 fundraising announcement, Pete Buttigieg announces hiring of well-known campaign manager
BREAKING NEWS - EXCLUSIVE
Fellow Indiana native, highly experienced in local government, to lead the young mayor's team as first Democratic debates near.
SOUTH BEND, IN - April 1, 2019
It's an exciting day for the Buttigieg campaign as they announce an initial report of having raised over seven million dollars after launching an exploratory committee in January. Adding to the excitement? A second announcement as they continue to add big names to this underdog project. Meet Team Pete's latest member: Garry Gergich.
Jerry is a longstanding employee of the Department of Parks and Recreation and 10-term mayor of Pawnee. He is a Comic Sans enthusiast and enjoys eating burritos in the park. The move comes as a surprise to many as Terry was prepared to retire to spend more time with his wife Gayle, but sources say he was so inspired by Pete's CNN Town Hall that Larry could not turn down the opportunity to take on more envelope stuffing and document filing.
Welcome to the team, Jeremy Gergich! "Well, you know it's like I always say 'it ain't government work if you don't have to do it twice." -Bary Gengurch
