Sharon Brown chosen as deputy leader of Senate Majority Coalition Caucus

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, WA - The Senate Majority Coalition Caucus has tapped state Sen. Sharon Brown to serve as its deputy leader. The Tri-Cities lawmaker was elected Wednesday when the Republican-led coalition’s senators met to finalize their slate of leaders for the next two years.

“I am very honored to have been chosen by my colleagues for this important role,” said Brown, R-Kennewick. “I’ve worked hard on behalf of the people of the 8th Legislative District and spent my time in the Legislature focused on creating a jobs-friendly environment for our employers and workers. I will bring that same dedication to this new leadership position, as we work together to solve the many challenges our state will face over the next two years.”

As deputy leader Brown will assist the Senate majority leader, Sen. Mark Schoesler of Ritzville, when it comes to legislative goals, policies, issues and priorities. She also will act as the MCC leader in Schoesler’s absence.

“This is yet another great opportunity to make sure that we in the Tri-Cities have a seat at the table,” Brown noted. “As a member of Senate leadership, I get to be a voice for our region and our concerns.”
