Montana Democrats Appoint Communications Director in Preparation for 2022 Midterm Cycle


Helena, MT — The Montana Democratic Party has made a key hire in anticipation of the 2022 midterm election cycle, rounding out their leadership team with the addition of Katherine Towell as Communications Director.

Towell comes to the party with a strong background in campaign and legislative communications, including time spent with the 2016 campaign of Hillary Clinton, and in the Office of the Speaker at the New York City Council. During the 2018 midterm cycle, Towell managed communications for the winning Democrat in one of only two Texas congressional districts flipped during that election, as well as for the Democratic nominee for Texas governor. Her interim work has involved providing strategic services to political candidates and non-profit institutions.

As Communications Director, Towell will oversee internal and external messaging practices as MDP looks to defend Democratic prospects during what is likely to be a historic election year.

“Partnering with the Montana Democratic Party to demand fair and equitable representation for the people is an incredible opportunity that I am thrilled to be taking on,” said Katherine Towell, newly-appointed Communications Director of the Montana Democratic Party. “Republican leadership has committed itself to sacrificing the long-term prosperity of the Treasure State for short-term personal gains, and I am proud to be coming on as a loud voice for change.”

“MDP plans to ride into 2022 fighting for the shared values that strengthen Montana families and small businesses,” said Sandi Luckey, Executive Director of the Montana Democratic Party. “Bringing that approach to the hardworking men and women of Montana necessitates a team ready to hit the ground running, and Katherine has shown no shortage of enthusiasm for this mission. The roster at MDP continues to grow in this off-year between elections — I could not look more forward to the advances this team will make for Democrats heading into 2022!”

Towell will be based out of Ravalli County and MDP headquarters in Helena.
