Thomas Rejoins Sagac

Alexandria, VA – Jody Thomas, former Principal at Sagac Public Affairs, has returned to the firm after a year’s sabbatical at the nonprofit Orphan Foundation of America.

“We’re delighted to have Jody back in the Sagac family,” says Trey Richardson, Principal of Sagac Public Affairs.  “She is uniquely qualified to provide strategic guidance to our clients due to her extensive experiences in the world of political fundraising.  We’re extremely proud of her efforts at the Orphan Foundation, where she raised $1.3 million in in-kind donations,” he said.

Prior to joining Sagac in 2003, Ms. Thomas spent 8 years handling the political fundraising operations for J. C. Watts, Jr. (R-OK).  She raised over $12 million while leading a 10-member senior management team for his national political activities, including travel and fundraising for President George W. Bush.

After Mr. Watts’ retirement, she was appointed by President George W. Bush as Director of Public Liaison for the Office of Personnel Management.

The return of Ms. Thomas to Sagac’s team continues the company’s ongoing efforts to expand the firm and provide enhanced services to the political action committee, issue advocacy, national candidate and party committee marketplace.
