On The Heels of The Chao Resignation, Five FAA Staffers Quit

The FAA Notes The Loss of Five Senior Staff After Resigning Over Recent Capitol Unrest

Late Thursday; FAA chief of staff Angela Stubblefield disclosed that, “This evening the Secretary and the Administrator received resignation letters from all our non-career staff members here at FAA.

These resignations will be effective Monday evening. Our colleagues’ decisions, given the gravity of yesterday’s events, are understandable. Like all of us, they are outraged by the brazen and violent attack on one of the sacred institutions of American democracy.”

Those choosing to resign are Arjun Garg, Chief Counsel And Acting Deputy FAA administrator; Brianna Manzelli, Assistant Administrator For Communications; Kirk Shaffer, Assistant Administrator For Airports; Bailey Edwards, Assistant Administrator For Policy, International Affairs And Environment; and Andrew Giacini, Acting Administrator For Legislative Affairs.

In a separate communication to some of his co-workers, Chief Counsel Garg explained that, "I am tremendously disappointed to leave this agency and my colleagues under these circumstances. Yet, I am taking with me pride in what we have accomplished together, respect for FAA’s dedicated professionals, and gratitude for the opportunity to have served my country. This has been the best job of my life. I will miss it. I will miss you.”
