HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Former state auditor and legislator Monica Lindeen has been named the executive director of the Montana Democratic Party.
Party chairwoman Mary Sexton announced the appointment Monday. Lindeen succeeds Nancy Keenan, who is retiring.
Lindeen served four terms in the House of Representatives, representing the rural eastern district between Billings and Miles City, starting in 1998. She was elected to two terms as state auditor and insurance commissioner serving from 2009 to 2016. She has served as executive director of YWCA Helena for the past year.
Lindeen says she's excited to get to work electing candidates who protect health care rights, defend public lands and help create jobs that pay well.
