http://ozarkspub.vo.llnwd.net/o37/KSMU/audio/mp3/greenecoun_542.mp3

The Greene County Democratic Central Committee has chosen former state representative Craig Hosmer to chair the Greene County Democratic Party. KSMU's Missy Shelton reports.

CRAIG HOSMER TAKES OVER FOR STEVE STEPP WHO RESIGNED FROM HIS POST AS CHAIRMAN OF THE GREENE COUNTY DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

HE HAD SERVED IN THAT POSITION FOR 11 YEARS.

HOSMER EXPLAINS WHY HE WAS INTERESTED IN THE POSITION.

HOSMER SAYS IT'S ALWAYS CHALLENGING TO GET DEMOCRATS ELECTED IN SOUTHWEST MISSOURI.

BUT HE SAYS THERE ARE PLENTY OF OPEN-MINDED PEOPLE IN THE AREA WHO WILL VOTE FOR THE PERSON, NOT THE PARTY.

HOSMER SAYS HE RESPECTS THE OUTGOING DEMOCRATIC CHAIR STEVE STEPP AND THE REPUBLICAN CHAIR DAN IMHOFF.

HOSMER WORKS AS AN ATTORNEY IN SPRINGFIELD.
