The state Democratic Party will hand over the chairperson's gavel to two officials — one upstate, one downstate.
Mayor Stephanie Miner of Syracuse will co-chair the party with Manhattan Assemblyman Keith Wright.
The pair will take over for Jay Jacobs, a party chairman from Long Island who announced his resignation earlier this month.
Before Mr. Jacobs, upstate was represented at the helm by June O'Neill, a St. Lawrence County Democratic politico. Ms. O'Neill stepped down from her No. 2 post at the party last year, and now works for Comptroller Tom DiNapoli.
The move will become official at a June 5 state committee meeting.
