The Montana chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has hired a new executive director. That position has been held by only one person since Montana’s ACLU hired him in 1988, Scott Crichton. Crichton is now retiring. He says the new director is a Missoula native.

"The new executive director starting at the end of August will be Caitlin Borgmann," says Crichton. "She graduated from Hellgate High School, and went on to Yale and New York University Law School. From there she went on to teach law at CUNY in New York City."

Borgmann will spend the summer working with Crichton and is set to take over as the new executive director of the Montana ACLU September first.

Eric Whitney is NPR's Mountain West/Great Plains Bureau Chief, and was the former news director for Montana Public Radio.
