Vice President Kamala Harris’ chief of staff, Tina Flournoy, is leaving her position this spring, a White House official told CNN Thursday.
Hartina M. “Tina” Flournoy (born April 30, 1956) is an American political advisor and Vice President Kamala Harris’ chief of staff. Marc Short, Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff, was her predecessor in this position.
Flournoy obtained a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University in 1978 and a law degree from Georgetown University Law Center in 1984.
Flournoy was named Chief of Staff to then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on December 3, 2020, and would remain in that post once Harris was sworn in.
In a Politico piece published on June 30, 2021, the vice president’s office was described as “dysfunctional, tense, and distrustful,” with Flournoy sharing some of the blame. Politico spoke with 22 Harris and Biden associates, as well as current and former vice presidential aides.
The report concluded that, in order to screen and protect Harris, Flournoy developed a restrictive environment in which choices are delayed and ideas are dismissed or ignored.
The White House announced Flourney’s departure from the position on April 21, 2022. Lorraine Voles, a senior advisor to Vice President Harris and former communications director to Vice President Al Gore and Hillary Clinton, is set to take her place.
