From a news release from Kerkman’s office issued Wednesday:

In caucus elections held Tuesday, Representative Samantha Kerkman (R-Salem Lakes) was re-elected to the position of Majority Caucus Sergeant-at-Arms for the 2021-2022 legislative session.

“I am humbled by the trust placed in me by my legislative colleagues and welcome the opportunity to continue working as part of the leadership team and attending to the needs of our caucus,” said Rep. Kerkman.

In addition to helping develop and execute caucus priorities, the Majority Caucus Sergeant-at-Arms maintains order in caucus meetings, supervising the coming and going of all persons to and from caucus and coordinating materials distribution and meeting the needs of members in caucus.
