Rep. Gifford Appointed to Key Committee, Leadership Posts
BOSTON – House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) is pleased to announce that he has appointed Representative Susan Williams Gifford (R-Wareham) to a top leadership post and a key legislative committee for the 2015-2016 session.
Representative Gifford has been named as the Assistant Minority Whip for the House Republican Caucus, where she will work alongside the Minority Whip to help manage the caucus’ legislative agenda and track important votes. The Wareham legislator has also been appointed to the House Committee on Steering, Policy and Scheduling, which is charged with assisting the Speaker and the members of the House of Representatives in identifying the major matters pending before the General Court, and the relative urgency and priority for the consideration of such matters.
“Representative Gifford will play an important role in helping to lead the caucus during the current legislative session,” said Representative Jones. “She has always done a tremendous job representing the residents of her district by fighting to keep taxes low, promote affordable housing and protect senior citizens and the environment, and I am confident she will continue to do so in her new position.”
“I am honored to receive my new committee and leadership assignments from the Minority Leader, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to pursue a responsible legislative agenda that will address the needs and concerns of all my constituents,” said Representative Gifford.
Representative Gifford represents the Second Plymouth District, which consists of the communities of Carver, Wareham and Precincts 3 and 6 in Middleborough. She has been a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives since 2003.
