Collett, Muth Elected To Senate Dem Leadership
A pair of Democrats from Montgomery County are the newest members of the Senate Democratic leadership for the upcoming session.
On Thursday, Sen. Maria Collett (D-Montgomery) was elected to serve as Caucus Secretary, while Sen. Katie Muth (D-Montgomery) was elected to serve as Democratic Policy Chair.
Collett will be succeeding state Sen. Larry Farnese (D-Philadelphia), who lost his reelection bid in the Democratic primary to Senator-elect Nikil Saval, as Caucus Secretary. Muth will be taking over for Sen. Lisa Boscola (D-Northampton) as Democratic Policy Chair.
Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa (D-Allegheny), Minority Whip Anthony Williams (D-Philadelphia), Minority Appropriations Committee Chairman Vincent Hughes (D-Philadelphia), and Caucus Chairman Wayne Fontana (D-Allegheny) will all remain in their positions in leadership for the upcoming session.
I am, again, humbled by the trust my @PaSenateDems colleagues have placed in me to serve as leader of this dynamic and diverse caucus. I believe the strength of our caucus comes from that diversity: ideologically, geographically and demographically.
Looking forward to 2021-22! pic.twitter.com/7pnk3lgXyC
