The Nebraska Democratic Party has announced Interim Executive Director Hadley Richters has been named the new executive director of the party.
Richters became interim executive director when Dan Marvin left the post in November 2014.
“Hadley is an outstanding political leader,” Vince Powers, Chair of the Nebraska Democratic Party said in a written statement released by the party. “She has played a critical role in countless campaigns, demonstrated extensive fundraising prowess and will provide great expertise for the Party as we prepare for the 2016 elections and beyond.”
Richters has served as finance director of the party. The NDP says Richters organized the most successful annual fundraising dinner in the party’s history.
Previously, Richters co-owned Richters, Brinkman, LLC, a political consulting firm based in Lincoln that worked on Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler’s campaign as well as other campaigns.
“I’m excited to continue my work with the Nebraska Democratic Party to further our progress. Over the past two years, we’ve seen a substantial increase in participation, involvement, and financial contributions from previous years, and there is a newfound energy within the NDP,” Richters said in a written statement. “As a result, we now have a group of outstanding candidates prepared to run for the Legislature, and the resources to help them win. I am excited to continue building on our recent success with the goal of electing more Democrats, and implementing progressive ideas that will continue to benefit all Nebraskans.”
