Senate Democrats Elect New Officers
RICHMOND — In the wake of Treasurer Henry Marsh’s resignation earlier this year, the Senate Democratic Caucus has unanimously elected two new officers. Sen. Louise Lucas (D – Portsmouth), previously Caucus Secretary, was elected Treasurer; Sen. Barbara Favola (D – Arlington) was elected to take Sen. Lucas’ former position as Secretary.
Said Caucus Chair Sen. Donald McEachin (D – Henrico), “I congratulate Sen. Lucas and Sen. Favola on their election. All members of the Caucus work hard for their constituents — and for all Virginians. I am gratified to see both senators seeking out the extra work that these positions entail. I look forward — and I know my colleagues look forward — to great things.”
Sens. Lucas and Favola join Democratic Leader Sen. Dick Saslaw (D – Fairfax), Caucus Chair Sen. McEachin, Caucus Vice Chair Sen. Toddy Puller (D – Fairfax), and Democratic Whips Sen. John Edwards (D – Roanoke) and Sen. Janet Howell (D – Reston) as Caucus officers.
