Springfield, Ill. – In recognition of his years standing up for working families and fighting for organized labor, state Rep. Jay Hoffman, D-Swansea, has been named Assistant Majority Leader of the House Democratic Caucus.
“I am humbled that my colleagues have put their trust in me to continue our fight for working families across the state,” Hoffman said. “I will do everything I can to make sure that middle-class families are getting a fair shake in Springfield and that we are creating jobs and opportunity for our area.”
With a new position in leadership, Hoffman is planning to continue his fight for economic reforms that will strengthen the middle-class and provide adequate funding for education. During the 100th General Assembly Hoffman will also serve as the Chairman of the House Labor Committee.
“As Chairman of the House Labor Committee, I will remain in steadfast opposition to Governor Rauner’s right-to-work agenda that does nothing more than drive down wages and benefits for working families, so corporations can earn higher profits,” Hoffman said. “It has been an honor to fight for the residents of the 113th District, and I will continue to do everything I can to protect the hard-working families that live in the Metro East and across Illinois.”
