Statement of Marlon Marshall on Return to 270 Strategies
WASHINGTON -- Marlon Marshall, a founding partner of 270 Strategies, issued the following statement today regarding his plan to return to the grassroots consulting firm on January 5:
"While it has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve the President in the White House Office of Public Engagement, I am thrilled today to announce I will be returning to the management team of 270 Strategies. I want to thank the President for the opportunity to serve and Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett for being an amazing boss and mentor.
"When we launched 270 Strategies, what bound our team together was not just the shared experience of leading key pieces of the Obama organization -- it was also our shared commitment to doing big things and having a meaningful impact on the issues and communities we care about. It was our deep-seated belief that grassroots organizing is a necessary component to making change in those communities.
"Today, the 270 mission is stronger than ever, and I could not be more excited to rejoin the team."
