A Macon legislator has a prominent role in his party’s caucus.
State Rep. James Beverly was elected this summer as chair of the Georgia House of Representatives Democratic Caucus, according to a news release.
A caucus is instrumental in determining the issues promoted by its party during a legislative session.
“I am excited to be in a leadership position that will enable me to help move Georgia forward,” Beverly said in a statement. “I appreciate the confidence my fellow caucus members have placed in me and look forward to advocating for the party and the people of Middle Georgia.”
The other leaders of the Democratic Caucus are:
▪ Minority Leader: Rep. Robert Trammell, Luthersville;
▪ Vice-Chair: Rep. Erica Thomas, Austell;
▪ Treasurer: Rep. Kimberly Alexander, Hiram.
Beverly also serves as chairman of the Macon-Bibb Community Enhancement Authority and in June was named to the Capitol Standards Arts Commission.
