Assemblyman Bill Berryhill, R-Ceres, has been appointed one of two chief Republican whips. Berryhill, whose district includes Victor, Lockeford, Clements, Morada and eastern Acampo, and Assemblyman Dan Logue, R-Linda, were appointed to the whip position by Assembly Republican Leader Connie Conway of Tulare.
As a chief Republican whip, Berryhill will help mobilize Assembly members’ votes on legislation, act as a liaison between members and leadership, and help coordinate strategy within the caucus.
“I am honored that Assemblywoman Conway has selected me to be a member of her leadership team,” Berryhill said in an e-mail. “I look forward to assisting her on my issues of expertise, such as water, agriculture and regulatory and budget reform.”
Berryhill was elected to a second term in the Assembly in November. His brother, Tom, was elected to the State Senate, representing the entire Lodi area.
Assemblymembers Kristin Olsen, of Modesto, and Nathan Fletcher, of San Diego, were also named as Republican whips.
