Senate Democrats have shuffled caucus leadership positions following Tuesday’s resignation of Sen. Elliot Werk, the outgoing Democratic assistant minority leader who is joining the Idaho State Tax Commission.
Boise Senator Cherie Buckner-Webb was named to fill Werk’s post. Senator Grant Burgoyne, also representing Boise, was named Minority Caucus Chair, which Buckner-Webb held previously.
Buckner-Webb was named Caucus Chair in 2013. Burgoyne previously served as assistant minority leader in the House of Representatives
