Rep Pete Aguilar said of his selection: “I’m grateful to have been chosen to serve as the Whip of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. The CHC’s priorities include comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship, creating good-paying jobs, accessing affordable health care, and investing in quality education for our kids – all issues that are significant in my community. He added, “San Bernardino is representative of many of the regions throughout the nation that would benefit from these priorities, so I’m glad to take on a new role to help push those policies forward.”

Aguilar was first elected to represent California’s 31st Congressional District in 2014.  He defeated Republican Paul Chabot to win re-election in November.

The 115th Congress convenes on January 3, 2017.
