Delray Beach’s Maria Sachs named Senate minority whip

by Dara Kam | September 21st, 2011

Senate Democrats tapped Delray Beach’s Maria Sachs today to serve on Senate Democratic Leader Nan Rich’s leadership team. Sachs, a lawyer, will serve along with Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, as one of the caucus’ two minority whips. Sachs replaces Sen. Tony Hill, D-Jacksonville, who yesterday completed his last day in the Senate after serving for 17 years as a legislator.

“I am honored to serve as the new Senate Democratic Whip,” Sachs said in a press release. “I will bring energy and a strong voice in fighting for Democratic principles for our state.”

Sachs, a lawyer and former prosecutor, was elected to the Senate in 2010 after serving four years in the state House.

“Senator Sachs has distinguished herself as a passionate voice on behalf of Floridians from all walks of life,” Rich, D-Weston, said. “She’ll bring that same dedication to her new leadership position as an advocate for Democratic priorities.”
