Allen County Democrats have new director

Bill Law has been appointed as the new executive director of the Allen County Democratic Party.

He replaces Jack Morris, who recently launched his candidacy for the Indiana Senate District 15.

Law is an IU graduate and Vice President/COO of Law's Enterprises Inc. He currently heads Law's Country Kennel, a family business here in Allen County.

A press release said he is enthusiastic about assuming this role with the Democratic Party.

"I am very excited about this opportunity. This is a very dynamic time in our local party and I'm thrilled to play an integral role in continuing to strengthen our organization to best serve our members, elected officials, candidates and voters" he said.

Law assumed his position Sept. 1.

"Bill had huge shoes to fill..." said Allen County Democratic Party Chair John Court "But he is more than up to the task, and we could not ask for a better person to be at the helm than this exciting young leader as our Party undergoes dynamic growth'

Law will oversee operational functions of the party and assist in strategic planning.
