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.”

▪ 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.
