Reuters shared that the announcement was first shared with her office on Monday.
“It’s been the honor of a lifetime to serve in this administration, working for the Vice President and President on behalf of the American people,” Fuchs wrote in an email.
“Fifteen months later, it’s almost difficult to recall the magnitude of the challenges we faced when we came in, from an unprecedented pandemic to historically difficult economic circumstances. And it is thanks to the work of this administration – and all of you – that our country has had such success in tackling these challenges and turning things around,” he added.
Harris communications director Jamal Simmons shared appreciation for his work in a statement.
“The Vice President is grateful for Michael’s tireless work, leadership, and the many miles he traveled domestically and internationally as we lifted up families and strengthened relationships with allies abroad. Our entire team will miss Michael as he begins this next chapter,” Harris wrote.
The departure is troubling as it reveals massive turnover among those serving with Harris, who has already been reportedly accused of leading a “toxic” workplace by fellow employees.
