Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Assemblywoman Monique Limón, D-Santa Barbara, has been appointed assistant majority whip of the California Assembly by Speaker Anthony Rendon.

Limón represents the 37th Assembly District, which in addition to Los Alamos, Buellton, Solvang and the Santa Ynez Valley includes the cities of Santa Barbara, Ventura, Goleta, Carpinteria, Ojai, Santa Paula, Fillmore and part of Oxnard.

The whip assists the speaker in mobilizing votes for major issues and facilitating the process of floor sessions, and traditionally a promising new Assembly member is appointed to the position, a spokeswoman for Limón’s office said.
