State Rep. Jason Sheppard of Temperance today was named to a key leadership role by his Michigan House colleagues for the 2019-20 legislative session.
Sheppard will serve as the majority caucus whip, a job of critical importance in communicating key information among legislators. Sheppard will inform colleagues about important issues and decisions coming up on the House floor to continue moving Michigan forward. He will also serve as a liaison between caucus leaders and other members, tracking votes and assisting legislators with policy-related questions.
“I am honored and humbled by the faith shown in me by House colleagues,” Sheppard said. “Importantly, this role will have benefits for Monroe County as we continue to move Michigan forward. It gives our community a seat at the table as key decisions are made about what’s best for Michigan’s families and hard-working taxpayers.”
Sheppard will be serving his third term representing a House district including much of Monroe County.
Sheppard also will serve on committees in the upcoming legislative session. Appointments are yet to be announced.
