Matt Shuckerow is leaving his position as Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s press secretary, the governor announced on Twitter on Thursday.

Shuckerow is the fourth prominent departure from the governor’s office in just over two months.

He follows Tuckerman Babcock, former chief of staff, Donna Arduin, former Office of Management and Budget director and Jeremy Price, deputy chief of staff.

Dunleavy replaced Babcock with Ben Stevens. Former state OMB management director Amanda Holland is the acting OMB director. Price has not been replaced.

Jeff Turner, the governor’s deputy communications director, will serve as the new contact for media.
