Michele Jacklin, the state-leading political columnist who took a top post with the DeStefano for Governor campaign, is leaving the job after just a little over four months. Friday is her last day as the campaign’s policy director. No word on why. Jacklin said Thursday she doesn’t have a new job lined up yet. “I’m leaving with the highest respect and admiration for the mayor [DeStefano],” Jacklin said. “It hasn’t diminished at all.” Campaign spokesman Derek Slap said: “Michele has been a strong, supportive, creative and wise leader in our operation. We are ahead because we are the campaign about ideas and Michele has led our efforts to keep ideas in the forefront.”
