Personnel note: Marsha Oliver leaves Jacksonville City Hall

Oliver served three and a half years.

Not even a week since Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry was re-elected, a key spokesperson announced plans to move on to the private sector.

Public Affairs Director Marsha Oliver‘s resignation was announced Monday via media release.

“While I am resigning from my position,” Oliver wrote Curry in a letter, “I maintain my support of efforts that you are leading to improve the safety, quality, and well-being of citizens and communities throughout Jacksonville.”

“From the first days of my administration, Marsha Oliver has been one of my most trusted advisers,” Curry said.

“Marsha helped define and communicate our work on public safety, kids’ educational programs, and rebuilding infrastructure … She is and will remain a person I work with in the future,” Curry said.

Oliver entered the administration early on, along with a former colleague at her previous position at the Duval County School Board: Tia Ford.

Ford also has since moved on.

Chief of Staff Brian Hughes has spearheaded many of Curry’s communications efforts in recent months, and one can expect him to help fill some of the gaps, along with Donna Seetram and James Croft.
