The House of Representatives Republican Caucus re-elected Georgia State Rep. Edward Lindsey (R-Atlanta) as the House Majority Whip by acclamation during caucus elections on Monday.
This marks his third term as House Majority Whip and his fifth term representing District 54, which covers Buckhead.
As House Majority Whip, Lindsey will be responsible for monitoring legislation as it moves through both chambers of the General Assembly and for helping the 119 members of the majority caucus to better understand the details of bills and resolutions.
“It is a tremendous honor to be re-elected House Majority Whip by my House Republican colleagues,” stated Lindsey in a release. “The voters have given our caucus a tremendous responsibility, and I look forward to joining my colleagues in helping advance strong conservative principles on behalf of the people of Georgia.”
Representative Edward Lindsey was first elected Majority Whip by the Republican Caucus, the fourth highest ranking position in House leadership, on December 17, 2009.
He was elected into the House of Representatives in 2004, and currently serves on the Rules, Appropriations, Education, Ethics, Industrial Relations, and Judiciary committees.
