Kentucky Democratic Party Chair To Step Down

By Tony McVeigh, Kentucky Public Radio

Kentucky Public Radio has learned the Kentucky Democratic Party will soon have a new chairman. Charlie Moore, who has held the post since March 2009, is stepping down.

The 61-year old Union County lawyer tells KPR he’s needed back home for personal and professional reasons. “When I took this volunteer position, I explained that I would not be able to stay much more than a year, and I’ve already stayed longer than that.”

The Kentucky Democratic Party’s State Central Executive Committee is scheduled to meet Saturday in Frankfort to choose Moore’s successor. Gov. Beshear’s deputy chief of staff Daniel Logsdon is reportedly the governor’s choice for the position.
