ATLANTA (July 15, 2021) | Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan today announced Macy McFall will serve as the new chief of staff for the Office of the Lieutenant Governor. McFall will be the first female to serve as chief of staff to a Lieutenant Governor in Georgia, and she follows John Porter, who has served as chief of staff to Duncan since 2019. Porter will remain in an advisory role to the office. McFall will begin in her new role August 1, 2021.

 “John’s leadership and commitment to my work as Lt. Governor have been invaluable to me and the citizens of Georgia during an unprecedented period of time,” said Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan. “John has been a loyal advisor since my days on the campaign trail and has led our team as we confronted difficult challenges around Covid-19, the state budget, public education, and healthcare. I am grateful for his tireless service and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

“Macy brings a deep understanding of state government. She is a strategic thinker with a comprehensive policy background, and as a veteran legislative staffer she has the ability to build strong coalitions,” said Lt. Governor Duncan. “In her new role as Chief of Staff, I know she will continue to advance the priorities of our office and the Senate – building a better Georgia.”

McFall previously served as the Lt. Governor’s deputy chief of staff and director of policy, coordinating Duncan’s legislative strategy. As a long-time Senate staffer, McFall has worked for several members of Senate caucus leadership, and also worked as a policy advisor for the Senate where she focused on election, redistricting, and local government law. She earned her law degree from Georgia State University and a bachelor’s degree with an emphasis in political science from the University of Alabama.
