Louisiana Democrats Announce Interim Executive Director James Gray

BATON ROUGE, LA – Monday, the Louisiana Democratic Party announced its Interim Executive Director, James Gray. Gray will lead the party as Executive Director through the November election and throughout the Democratic State Central Committee’s Executive Director search.

A native of Scotlandville, Gray joins the Party after serving eight years as Chair of the Orleans Democratic Parish Executive Committee and serving as a member of the New Orleans City Council.

“As we rapidly approach the November elections, I’m honored to join this fight with Louisiana Democrats and rise to the challenge ahead,” Executive Director James Gray said. “I look forward to partnering with party leaders, organizers, and volunteers across Louisiana to build coalitions that will push our state forward. Together, we’ll break turnout records, recruit and train Democrats across the state, and turn Louisiana blue. While there are only 43 days left until November 3, we’ve already started the work to make that a reality.”

“James Gray’s experience building relationships and coalitions in Louisiana politics is exactly what we need to successfully grow our party in every corner of the state,” Louisiana Democratic Party Chair Katie Bernhardt said. “I’m confident that James is the leader we need to strengthen our party and break records this November.”
