WASHINGTON — The Democratic Lieutenant Governors Association (DLGA) announced today that Bethany Hall-Long (Delaware) and Cyrus Habib (Washington) will serve as interim Co-Chairs of the organization, and Kathy Hochul (New York) will join Mike Cooney (Montana) on the Executive Committee.
“I’m ready to move DLGA forward as we work to continue to elect those who will fight for the same democratic values we share with every day hard working Americans,” said Delaware Lt. Gov. Bethany Hall-Long.
“The DLGA has come a long way since it was reestablished. I look forward to building on our accomplishments as we continue to help grow the Democratic bench and prepare our future leaders for success,” said Washington Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib.
