Wyoming Democratic Party loses director
WYOMING – The Wyoming Democratic Party announced today the departure of executive director Aimee Van Cleave.
Van Cleave, a Laramie native, has led the party for the past two and a half years. She was the youngest executive director to serve a statewide party in the United States. She began her term at age 22.
“It has been a pleasure working with the Wyoming Democratic Party,” Van Cleave said. “One of the highlights of my career has been seeing the energy that we can draw up in this state when we put our minds to it and work together for our collective progressive values. I believe the Wyoming Democratic Party has grown in exceptionally positive ways over my time there and is poised to continue that growth. I wish this organization the utmost success over the coming years.”
Party chair Joe M. Barbuto added, “Aimee brought a tremendous amount of energy, knowledge and passion to the position. Thanks to her dedicated service, we’re in a much better position as a party going into the next election cycle than we have been for some time. Needless to say, it will be a difficult task to fill her shoes. On behalf of the party, I wish her much success in new adventures and sincere gratitude for her service to the Wyoming Democratic Party.”
