Jacob Winowich, Executive Director, announced he will be leaving the West Virginia Democratic Party at the beginning of the 2014.

"After a year of recruiting top-tier candidates and organizing the states' Jefferson Jackson Dinner for a crowd of 1600, I've decided to explore other opportunities," said Jacob Winowich.

"Jacob's hard work and dedication to the Democratic Party have been appreciated and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors," said Larry Puccio, Chairman of the Democratic Party of West Virginia.

Chairman Puccio will be making an announcement about the new Executive Director in the near future.
