The incoming Democratic freshmen for the 116th Congress elected Congresswoman-elect Katie Hill (D-Agua Dulce) and Congressman-elect Joe Neguse (D-Lafayette) as co-representatives for their class on Wednesday, Nov. 29.

“This Freshman class is larger, younger, and more diverse than ever before and that’s not a coincidence – it’s a call to action,” Hill said in a tweet. “Yesterday [Joe Neguse] and I were elected to be the Co-Representatives to Leadership for this historic class and we are so ready to get to work.”

Hill and Neguse will serve in the freshman leadership roles alongside Haley Stevens (D-Rochester Mills) and Colin Allred (D-Dallas), who were elected as co-presidents of the Democratic freshman class.

“”Haley, Colin, Joe and I are going to make sure that the issues our constituents care about are at the forefront of the national conversation,” Hill said. “Our time is right now. Let’s go.”

Hill’s election to the junior leadership role follows her initiative in drafting a letter of support for Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-San Francisco) bid for Speaker of the House. The letter was signed by 22 Democratic freshmen of the 116th Congress, including new members to the California delegation such as Representative-elect Katie Porter (D-Irvine) and Representative-elect Harley Rouda (D-Laguna Beach).
