Mayor Anthony Foxx today said former County Commissioner Dan Murrey will be the executive director for the host committee of the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
Foxx made the announcement at the Bechtler Museum at noon.
“Dan brings just the right mix of skills,” Foxx said, standing in front a blue banner dotted with 2012 DNC logos. “As a CEO, he understands how to build an organization, develop teamwork among talented people and drive results, all essential qualities for our host committee effort.”
Foxx said Murrey will get to work Monday.
The convention will be held at Time Warner Cable Arena in September 2012.
