The Vermont Democratic Party has hired a new executive director.
Robert Dempsey, a Buffalo native (which means he won't be whining about the weather here), was most recently the Midwest Candidate Services director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Washington, D.C.
The party has been without a director for months. Interim Kristina Althoff left in Feburary. Former Director Jill Krowinski left last May to run Gaye Symington's gubernatorial campaign.
Dempsey will be working with a relatively new executive committee. Judy Bevans was elected chairwoman in March along with Vice Chairman Michael Inners, Secretary Linda Weiss, Treasurer Ed Frey and Assistant Treasurer Lloyd Touchette.
