Valley Congressman Joins Trump Transition Team

Congressman Devin Nunes

A Central Valley Congressman is being named to an important part of the incoming Donald Trump presidential administration.

Congressman Devin Nunes is now part of president-elect Donald Trump’s transition team.

Nunes has served seven terms and is currently the chair of the house intelligence committee.

He is from Tulare and his district includes much of western Tulare and eastern Fresno Counties.

The transition team plays a critical role in smoothing over the transfer of presidential power between administrations.

In a statement, Nunes says he is ‘honored’ to be part of the team and will quote “advise President-elect Trump on the appointments of his Cabinet members and on appointments to other top positions in the new administration”

Nunes is the only local politician on the transition team.
