CHARLOTTE COUNTY – At Monday’s meeting of the Charlotte County Democratic Executive Committee, party members unanimously elected Patrick Hurley as the new Chairman.
Hurley succeeds Richard Jones, who resigned citing personal and professional demands.
In announcing his candidacy for the post, Hurley said, “I’m seeking to help coordinate an aggressive effort to embolden Charlotte County Democrats to participate in and win elections, so we may help restore fairness and responsible governance.”
Hurley joined the local Democratic Party in 2017 as Precinct 55 Captain. He has served as a key member of the Charlotte DEC’s Communications Committee, helping launch a new Web site and implementing new technologies to connect with local voters.
He is a co-founder of pH Market Research LLC in Placida. Hurley is married to Pam, with whom he shares a passion for travel, SCUBA diving, nature, and animals.
