STATEMENT BY SANDRA B. MORTHAM, NATIONAL CHAIR, MAGGIE’S LIST
ON THE PASSING OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR MISSY SHOREY
(Tallahassee, Fla) -- The statement is to be attributed to Sandra B. Mortham, national chair, Maggie’s List on the passing of Maggie's List executive director, Missy Shorey.
"It is with an overwhelming sadness that we share the loss of a truly great spirit, a fierce advocate, and lover of life, Missy Shorey. Missy served as our executive director and took our federal political action committee to even greater heights in electing fiscally conservative women to the U.S. Congress over these last election cycles. Her tireless efforts on both personal and political causes in Florida, Texas and around the country will never be forgotten. Missy's boundless enthusiasm and energy, her sense of humor and beautiful smile will be greatly missed. Our hearts go out to her husband Marc, her family, and everyone she touched in her impactful, but all too brief life. We will miss her, we honor her, and we were so blessed to know her.”
About Missy Shorey
As the daughter of a Coast Guard rescue pilot and the wife of a retired Air Force officer, through decades of multiple moves, Missy learned from a young age what it means to serve our nation and is committed to serving the communities of our county.
Today, she brings that sense of duty to Dallas where she and her beloved husband, the Lt. Colonel (Retired USAF), live following his service in the U.S. Air Force. Missy believes the activists, voters and citizens of Dallas County deserve to have a principled leader who advocates for Republican values and works to elect Republican candidates committed to expanding opportunity, celebrating our values while defending democracy. Missy is ready to be the voice that the people of Dallas County need.
Since 2012, Missy proudly serves as the Executive Director of Maggie’s List, a federal PAC dedicated to electing women to U.S. Congress who stand for fiscal conservatism, less government, more personal responsibility and strong national security. In 2016, she was appointed to the Texas Radiation Advisory Board.
Prior to founding Shorey Public Relations in 2004, Missy held positions at global public relations and public affairs agencies. Serving as a Senior Vice President at Hill & Knowlton Public Relations Public Affairs, Missy led the Marketing Communications Practice catering to Fortune 500 companies, global brands and municipal government innovators. As a Vice President at Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide, Missy was integral in generating $4.5 million in revenue and new business while supporting clients in the technology practice.
Missy also has extensive public-sector experience with Congressional and local campaigns. She served as a Communications Advisor to the Senate Republican Conference as well as a staffer on the Joint Economic Committee, in which Missy saw first-hand the freedom and opportunity ushered in with free market policies. Missy graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Florida and an MBA from American University. She and her husband Marc, with their shelter dog Holley Bear, have all found their “forever home” in Lake Highlands where Marc is a pilot for Southwest Airlines and Missy continues to manage Shorey Public Relations. They are committed to making a difference in Dallas.
