Incoming Democratic chief Katherine Clark (Massachusetts) introduced her 10 deputy leaders for the session of Congress starting in January on Thursday.
“I’m proud to announce the crew of the 118th Congress Deputy Chief Whip who will work on behalf of the American individuals to make sure alternative and justice for all,” wrote Clark, who at present serves as Assistant to the Speaker of the Home.
Democratic deputy leaders embody Reps. Jan Schakowsky (Sick.), Terri Sewell (Ala.), Henry Cuellar (Texas), Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas), Jimmy Panetta (Calif.), Colin Allred (Texas), Sharice Davids (Canada), Deborah Ross (NC), Linda Sanchez (Calif.) and Marilyn Strickland (Washington).
Clark stated the crew represents “the unimaginable variety of experiences and views” championed by the Democratic Celebration.
“United in our mission, we’ll harness the energy of Home Democrats to advance the wants of working households and defeat the extremist Republican agenda,” he wrote.
The assistant speaker was elected Minority Chief final week following an earlier stint as vice chair of the Home Democratic Caucus. He’ll serve alongside Reps. Hakeem Jeffries (NY) as Minority Chief and Pete Aguilar (Calif.) as Caucus Chairman.
The November 30 election made historical past when Jeffries was chosen to succeed Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi (California) as chief of the Democratic Celebration, making him the primary black individual to move both matches in both chamber.
