The group organizing the 2008 Democratic National Convention wants Democratic strategist Michael Dino to head the staff.

Two sources confirmed Monday that Mike Dino will be named executive director of Denver's host committee this week. He is the senior policy adviser at Patton Boggs LLP.
Michael Dino has a long track record in Denver politics. He was a leader of Denver Mayor Wellington Webb's 1995 runoff campaign and served as a senior adviser under Webb.
And Dino has connections to three of the state's top Democrats. He was a campaign adviser to both Gov. Bill Ritter and U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., last year.

He was also campaign chairman in 2003 for Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper.
Under Webb, Dino gained event experience as executive director of Denver's 1997 Summit of the Eight Task Force.

Debbie Willhite, who has served as the host committee's executive director during the successful bid for the convention, said she plans to continue working with the host committee as it transitions from bidding for the convention to preparing for it.
An assistant to Mike Dino said he declined comment.
