Last night Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Pat Mullins announced Shaun Kenney will be the party’s new Executive Director. Kenney is replacing outgoing Executive Director, Anthony Reedy. The Executive Director of the party is the most senior staff member, running the day to day operations of the Virginia Republican party. Chairman Mullins said tonight Kenney’s main focus as party director will be on fundraising.
Shaun Kenney has an extensive background in the party, having served as communications directer for Ed Gillespie when Gillespie was RPV Chairman. In 2010, Kenney became Executive Director of American Life League, the nation’s largest grassroots Catholic pro life group. In 2009, Kenney was elected to the Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors and was later elected chairman. Shaun is the founder K6 Consulting LLC, a political and communication consulting firm. He is perhaps best known for his outspoken commentary on the popular Virginia blog, Bearingdrift.com. He lives with his wife and seven children in Kents Store, Virginia.
Shaun Kenney clearly has the background and experience to tackle this difficult assignment. We at the Bull Elephant wish him the best of luck!!
