Democratic Party of Virginia Chair Brian Moran announced yesterday that after two years of hard work building the party and helping to elect its candidates, he will resign as party chair, effective as of the DPVA’s December 8, 2012 Central Committee meeting. Here is his statement. The term of DPVA Central Committee members and officers (except for DNC members) ends in spring/summer 2013 with the election of new members. Brian is stepping down early to facilitate the transition to new leadership in the critical 2013 Governor/Lt. Gov/AG election year. Brian has worked hard, travelled much, and done a terrific job under very difficult conditions to move the party forward and has been an excellent chair. I wish him all the best in his future ventures. (As immediate past chair, he remains a member of the DPVA Steering Committee.)
Alexandria member of the House of Delegates Charniele Herring has announced that she will seek election to the Chair’s position. Here is a letter that she sent out today. Delegate Herring would be an exciting choice as the new DPVA Chair.
