Kansas Democrats Get New Director
December 21, 2011

The Kansas Democratic Party will have a new Executive Director for the election year 2012.
Kentucky political operative Jason Perkey has taken the job.
According to a news release from Democratic party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon, “Perkey will leave his position as a regional field director with the Kentucky Democratic Party Coordinated Campaign in Louisville, KY, to start as the KDP’s executive director on Jan. 3.

“Jason has a wealth of campaign experience, good management experience, and he is committed to the values of education, opportunity and responsibility that the Kansas Democratic Party holds dear,” said Wagnon,
“The energy he brings to Kansas will surely make a difference in the coming months.”

Perkey said he is happy to be coming to Kansas. “I am very excited to be leading an incredibly smart and talented team,” he said. “I am especially looking forward to unleashing the enthusiasm and energy of Democratic activists all over the state.”

In 2010, Perkey managed the campaign of Democrat David Yates who defeated incumbent Republican Doug Hawkins for the District 25 seat on the Louisville Metro Council. Perkey has also worked on presidential, gubernatorial, congressional and state legislative campaigns in Kentucky, Illinois and Virginia.”
