June O'Neill, the state Democratic Committee Executive Committee chairwoman, is stepping down from all party duties, according to St. Lawrence County Dem officials.
The move will come as a surprise to no one; Mrs. O'Neill, a Morley resident, is open about her desire to retire and spend more time with her family.
Mrs. O'Neill is a longtime Democratic Party activist. She's also stepping down from duties in St. Lawrence County, where she's the vice chairwoman.
There's no word yet on who will replace her at the state party, but the rumor mill has also swirled about the potential departure of Jay Jacobs, Mrs. O'Neill's counterpart at the party.
I'll have a full story posted just as soon as I get around to it, from Elizabeth Lyons.
