"Kyle McDonald Tapped To Lead LPIN Efforts

Kyle McDonald, Kokomo native and Wabash College graduate, was announced today as the new Executive Director for the Libertarian Party of Indiana.

"We're just thrilled," commented LPIN State Secretary Rebecca Sink-Burris. "We're a relatively young and fast-growing organization. The challenges facing our continued growth require a variety of skills and Kyle clearly demonstrated his strengths in the key areas."

McDonald comes to the LPIN after working with the Washington D.C.-based non-profit, The Leadership Institute. While serving as National Field Director, McDonald administered the Insititute's National Field Representative program, providing support for over 27 field representatives. Through that program, he worked with over 1,200 activist organizations in all 50 states.

Prior to his promotion to National Field Director, McDonald trained under Tracey Johnson, a renowned political fundraiser on the national scene. Under Johnson's direction, McDonald implemented the Institute's 2004 fund raising plan.
McDonald has experience in strengthening college campus organizations and has worked a number of successful political campaigns in a variety of volunteer roles. McDonald is a Wabash College graduate, earning a B.A. as a double major in Political Science and English. He was a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity and the Wabash College Sphinx Club.

McDonald succeeds interim Executive Director Dan Drexler. Drexler will stay on as an advisor to the organization through this fall's election. McDonald will begin work at LPIN headquarters the beginning of October."
