WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
Continuing its focus on raising money, the 2008 Denver 2008 Convention Host Committee named Melissa Koenigsberg as chief financial officer and finance director:
Currently serving as finance director for Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley... in her role as CFO, Koenigsberg will implement and manage a plan to raise $40 million in cash necessary to host the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver.
"Fundraising is our number one priority and Melissa's qualifications make her the ideal candidate to lead the Host Committee in our efforts to raise the funds necessary to host a great Convention," [Committee member Steve] Farber stated. "I couldn't be more pleased that Melissa has agreed to join our team for this exciting endeavor."
Previous to working for Gov. O’Malley, Koenigsberg served as finance director for Sen. Salazar and as southeast regional finance director for Sen. John Edwards' 2004 presidential bid.
