Kirk resigned from Cedar’s board in September to accept an appointment as U.S. Senator for Massachusetts until a special election was held to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Ted Kennedy.

Kirk served as national chairman of the Democratic Party from 1985-1989, and was chairman of the board of directors of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation; and co-chairman of the Commission on Presidential Debates.
