On May 18, news broke that Graeme Zielinski had resigned his position in the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. Zielinski’s resignation came two months after he lost his job as party spokesman, and at the time Zielinski said he would be busying himself with an “exciting writing project.”
Fast forward nearly two months, and the Democratic Party of Wisconsin still has not chosen a Communications Director to replace Zielinski. According to the DPW’s “Job Postings” page, cover letters and resumes from interested parties were due to the DPW by June 14.
While I’m certainly curious to know who the Democratic Party of Wisconsin chooses as its new Communications Director, I’m more curious to know when the DPW will finally bring someone on board to communicate its message. While there may not be a sense of urgency within the DPW to bring a new Communications Director onboard any time soon, given that we’re between elections, I’m of the mindset that the DPW can’t afford to sit idly by at a time when it could (should) be communicating what the party stands for leading up to the critical 2014 elections.
