OLYMPIA – Sen. Brian Hatfield, D-Raymond, released the following statement today on the reorganization of the Washington Senate Democrats’ leadership and recommended committee membership:

“I congratulate Sen. Ed Murray on his election as Senate majority leader and the actions he has taken to represent the many different points of view within the Democratic Caucus. Already, Sen. Murray has shown tremendous skill in leadership and being open to others’ thoughts and suggestions. We face a narrowly divided Senate chamber and, more than ever, we will need to see bipartisanship and cooperation between Senate Republicans and Democrats, and members from rural, urban and suburban districts.
