Bill Luckett named new WyoDems director

Congratulations to Bill Luckett, the new executive director of the Wyoming Democratic Party. The news was announced today by State Chairman John Millin. Bill has worked as the party's communications director since August 2005. You may know him as the guy who put thogether those very useful and entertaining daily news digests for the state party's blog. I was wondering why there's been no new news for the past few weeks. Now I know.

Here's a Millin quote from the press release:

"Bill has done an outstanding job as our communications director for nearly three years, and I expect that he will continue his good work as our executive director. Bill has worked on the front lines of Wyoming politics for nearly a decade. His experience, in addition to the relationships he has built with Democratic Party stakeholders across the state, will be valuable assets for the party as we head further into the 2008 election season and beyond."

The 35-year-old Luckett covered politics for six years with the Casper Star-Tribune. In 2005, the Sheridan native and UW grad joined the Wyoming Democratic Party as its communications director.

Here's a quote from Luckett:

"It has been many years since we've seen the kind of excitement and enthusiasm in Democratic Party politics in Wyoming that people are showing this year. We will work to capitalize on this momentum and put up a slate of candidates who will appeal to the best instincts of the people of this great state."
