Indiana House Democrats announce leadership team
INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana House Democrats today announced that State Representative Phil GiaQuinta (D-Fort Wayne) was reelected by his peers to serve as the Indiana House Democratic Leader. GiaQuinta will serve alongside State Representative Cherrish Pryor (D-Indianapolis) and State Representative Carey Hamilton (D-Indianapolis), who were elected as Minority Floor Leader and Minority Caucus Chair, respectively.
“It’s never been about me,” GiaQuinta commented. “It’s always been about service to my beloved state and caucus. This legislative body has great promise for what it can accomplish for Hoosiers, an ideal that my late father, State Representative Ben GiaQuinta, instilled in me from an early age. The Indiana House faces enormous challenges ahead as the legislature enters its biennial budget session. This leadership team is well-positioned to take on the issues that matter most to the people this institution serves.”
Indiana House Democratic Caucus leadership positions went into effect immediately following an internal election this afternoon. New members of the caucus were in attendance for the vote following the 2022 Midterms.
The 123rd General Assembly will convene for the ceremonial start of session on Nov. 22, otherwise known as Organization Day.
