Farewell, Angelo Persichilli: PMO loses its sixth director of communications in six years

Hot off the press gallery listserv comes a letter of resignation from Angelo Persichilli, who leaves his position as director of prime ministerial communications after just seven months on the job: 

30 March 2012

To: Parliamentary Press Gallery

With considerable regret, I have informed Prime Minister Stephen Harper that I am resigning from my position as Director of Communications, effective once my successor is appointed.

This is a prestigious position that requires extremely intense effort and very long hours, which at a certain age, are not an option for a long period of time.

At this time, I would like to express my thanks to members of the media at all levels for their professionalism and fair-mindedness in our dealings, as well as my appreciation to my colleagues in the Prime Minister's Office, to the members of the Cabinet and Conservative caucus, and to the federal public service, with all of whom I have greatly valued the privilege of working.

Most of all, I would like to thank Prime Minister Stephen Harper for the opportunity to serve him during this exciting period. It has been an honour.
