TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — Drew Meiner, who’s held a number of positions with the DeSantis administration – most recently senior advisor – is leaving at the end of the year.

“Working for Governor DeSantis these past eight years has been the honor of a lifetime. Whether it was late nights on the campaign trail or early mornings in the Governor’s office, I’ll always be thankful for the trust he and the First Lady placed in me. I’m proud to consider them friends and will always be Team DeSantis,” Meiner said in a statement.

He will be joining Tallahassee lobbying firm Capital City Consulting.

“Nick Iarossi and Ron LaFace have established themselves as the preeminent firm in Tallahassee where their expertise and relationships have paid dividends for clients both in Florida and nationally. I look forward to bringing my years of experience in the Governor’s Office to the firm and building on that success,” Meiner stated.

Governor DeSantis wished Meiner the best of luck with his future endeavors – including on the golf course.

“Drew has been a great, long-standing member of our team and we wish him the best in his next chapter. As an avid golfer, I wish him well, hope he stays out of the rough and hits only fairways and greens in his future rounds,” Governor DeSantis said of Meiner’s departure.
