Vermont Democrats have hired a new field director to help the party prepare for next year’s elections.
Ryan McLaren is a lifelong Vermonter and former aide to Governor Peter Shumlin. He’ll oversee the party reorganization process this fall.
Party Executive Director Jesse Bragg says McLaren’s field experience will be key for Democratic campaigns next year.
Bragg had been doing much of the field work but was promoted to executive director in March and the party needed someone to direct field operations.
