DAGA Announces “DAGA 3.0” with New Structure and Senior Staff
February 7, 2022
Washington, DC – The Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) is announcing “DAGA 3.0” as the committee transitions into a new model of leadership that solidifies its growth over the past five years and sets it up to grow financially and politically in the years to come.
DAGA has started the transition to a “Presidential” Leadership Model, which will be completed over the next year. This is similar to the model used by a number of sister committees such as the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) and strategic partners, including Planned Parenthood Federation of American (PPFA) and EMILY’s List, among others. This structural change will help the committee retain and develop staff over time, and better execute its mission of electing AGs, advocating on their behalf, and elevating the AGs and their work.
As part of the transition, DAGA is announcing the following personnel changes:
- Current Executive Director Sean Rankin will become President of DAGA.
- Current Deputy Executive Director Michelle Ortiz will become Executive Director.
- Jonathan Sclarsic will become DAGA’s first-ever Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel. He currently serves as U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar’s Legislative Director and General Counsel.
In addition, DAGA is excited to announce two additional senior staff hires. Britteny Jenkins will become DAGA’s next Policy Director. She currently serves as U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s Chief of Staff, and previously served as Democratic Counsel to the House Committee on Oversight & Reform. JP Boyle will become DAGA’s next Development Director. He currently serves as Development Campaign Director for America’s Promise and is an alumnus of dozens of campaigns nationwide.
