Boehner expands leadership positions for Tea Party Republicans
Posted by iusbvision on November 8, 2010
Under the old rules each freshman class had only one seat on the steering committee. There will also be a new “Tea Party” position on the caucus elected leadership team.
Incoming Speaker John Boehner:
November 9, 2010
Dear Freshman Member–Elect,
As you prepare to come to Washington for Orientation during the week of November 14th, we wanted to bring to your attention the various leadership opportunities available to your class.
The incoming GOP freshman class for the 112th Congress is no ordinary freshman class, and this is no ordinary time for our nation. Accordingly, the incoming GOP freshman class will have a larger voice at the leadership table and on the Steering Committee than previous GOP freshman classes in previous Congresses. In addition, there are various other non-elected roles in which freshmen can participate which we look forward to discussing with you during orientation.
Your class will elect the following positions on November 17th following our Conference Organizing activities. We will arrange for a room for you to conduct your deliberations and voting.
1) Freshman Class President
2) Freshman Class Steering Committee Representative #1
3) Freshman Class Steering Committee Representative #2
4) Freshman Representative to the Elected Leadership Team
5) Freshman Representative to the Policy Committee
If you have any questions about these positions, please feel free to call the Office of the Republican Leader at 202-225-XXXX or the Office of the Republican Whip at 202-225-XXXX.
