Alex Heckler named DGA treasurer



Heckler South Florida lawyer, consultant and fundraiser Alex Heckler has been named Treasurer (National Finance Chair) of the Democratic Governors Association. The 33-year-old uber money-raiser had been deputy treasurer.

“There are 37 governors’ races around the nation this November,”  Heckler said. “One of the most important races is right here in Florida,where our Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink would make an outstanding Governor.

Not only do these races affect four out of every five Americans, Heckler noted, but they are particularly important because many of those governors – including Florida’s – will oversee the redistricting process, drawing lines for Congressional and state legislative races for the next decade
