Hudson County Executive-elect Craig Guy announced today that he will appoint Jenny Davis to serve as his Chief of Staff when he takes office in January.

Davis will become the first woman to serve in the role and will succeed Guy who currently serves as Chief of Staff to outgoing County Executive Tom DeGise. 

“There is no one better prepared to step into this critical role than Jenny Davis,” said Guy. “I have known Jenny and admired her work in New Jersey politics for years.”  

Davis most recently served as Chief of Intergovernmental Affairs for the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, where she worked as the liaison between the agency and local governments and the communities in which the Port Authority serves. Prior to that she worked as the Chief Operating Officer of the Murphy for Governor 2017 campaign, and she is a former Deputy Executive Director of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee as well as a former Chief to Staff to a Hudson County state legislator. Davis has been appointed to the New Jersey-Israel Commission and serves on multiple boards, including NJ Shares, the Union County Improvement Authority, and the Union County Workforce Development Board. 

Davis will also serve as the Executive Director of County Executive-elect Guy’s Transition Team.
