DLCC Announces New Hires, Roles for 2018-2020 Fight
Committee Continues to Expand in Preparation for Pre-Redistricting Statehouse Wins 
 
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee Executive Director Jessica Post announced significant staff and capacity expansions as the organization prepares to expand Democratic power in statehouses and flip legislative chambers in the upcoming election cycles.
 
“The expansion of DLCC’s political, data, finance, and digital departments will provide statehouse Democrats with the capacity and support needed to win legislative chamber majorities and build Democratic power across the country,” said Post. “DLCC’s work in the state legislative space is crucial to rebuilding the party at all levels of the ballot. The lawmakers we help elect will strengthen the party’s recruitment bench, and the chamber majorities we win will prevent Democrats from spending another decade combating grotesque GOP gerrymanders to win majorities in the U.S. House and state legislatures. The unique skills and expertise of DLCC’s staff make them essential weapons in the Democratic arsenal to force Trump’s Republican Party into full retreat.”
 
Additionally, National Political Director Dave Griggs has been named DLCC’s Chief Political Officer, while Kevin Boyd has been promoted to National Political Director. The department also has hired a new Political Assistant and a Political Coordinator. The new Political Department roles and team members will increase DLCC’s political capacity both within D.C. and in states across the country. These and additional hires across other departments will empower DLCC to better work with state Democratic caucuses and targeted state legislative campaigns to give them the tools they need to succeed, including running hundreds of candidate and campaign trainings and recruitment events and providing innovative tools to assist with field programs, fundraising, and data.
