Rep. Jessyn Farrell
Newly Elected Democratic 46th District State Rep. Jessyn Farrell has been named assistant majority whip.

Farrell was elected in November to the 46th Legislative District seat that retired Democratic Rep. Phyllis Kenny previously held.

Fellow House Democrats chose Farrell to be part of the party’s House leadership team for the 2013 legislative session.

As an assistant majority whip, Farrell will aid the majority whip, Rep. Kevin Van DeWege of Sequim, with internal caucus matters such as member attendance, vote tallying, and new member mentorship.

“I am very excited to serve our caucus in this role,” Farrell said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues to create family-wage jobs, fully fund our education system, protect our environment, and provide opportunity for all Washingtonians.”

House Democrats elected their top leaders in late November 2012, but left the two assistant whip positions open until the beginning of legislative session. Another freshman Democrat, Rep. Marcus Riccelli of Spokane, was elected to the second spot.

In addition to her leadership position, Farrell will also serve on the Environment Committee, Early Learning and Human Services Committee, and Transportation Committee.

Her district includes Lake Forest Park, Kenmore and northeast Seattle.
