New job for Katherine Clark

US Representative Katherine Clark of Melrose got a promotion this week: from assistant whip to senior whip within the House Democratic caucus.

In announcing Clark’s new position, Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer called her “an effective member of the whip team” who “brings a strong voice for women and families to the table.”

Senior whips meet to discuss key issues, and they talk with fellow Democrats about upcoming legislation.
