CASPER – The Wyoming Democratic Party announced today that Chuck Herz has been named the state party’s vice chairman and is currently serving as acting state party chair.

Current State Party Chair Leslie Petersen appointed Herz to the vice chairmanship recently vacated by Mike Bell, who resigned last week to focus exclusively on several candidates’ races, including some of whom are in contested primaries.

Because Petersen has taken a leave of absence to wage her campaign for governor, Herz as vice chair will assume the duties of state party chair as needed in her absence, in accordance with the party’s bylaws. Day-to-day party operations continue to be run by Executive Director Bill Luckett at state party headquarters in Casper.

Herz has served as the Wyoming Democratic Party’s treasurer since 2007. Prior to taking that position, he served as chair of the Teton County Democratic Party from 2003 to 2007. He is a retired attorney and former General Counsel of the National Science Foundation. He lives in Moose with his wife Barbara. One of his two daughters, his son-in-law and two granddaughters also live in Moose.

Herz’ appointment as vice chair must be confirmed by the Wyoming Democratic State Central Committee at its next meeting, tentatively scheduled for late summer or early fall. The two-year terms of office for all four state party officers – chair, vice chair, secretary and treasurer – expire in April 2011.
