Berryhill moves to Twain Harte

Union Democrat staff

State Sen. Tom Berryhill is now a resident of Tuolumne County, staff for the Republican, formerly of Modesto, confirmed Monday.

Berryhill has long been a resident of the Central Valley, with his father and brother also representing Valley-centric districts in the Legislature.

"I am not sure when he moved but it was a while ago," said Eileen Ricker, who became Berryhill's communications director in December.

Berryhill won election to the 14th District Senate seat in 2010 after serving as the 25th District Assemblyman representing Tuolumne and Calaveras counties. He moved from Modesto to Oakdale to compete for the Senate seat. Courts rejected a suit filed by Columbia attorney and unsuccessful GOP primary candidate Heidi Fuller to challenge Berryhill's claim to Oakdale residency. He later moved back to Modesto before apparently making his way up to Twain Harte.

Berryhill has filed initial paperwork for a re-election bid in 2014 to represent the newly drawn 8th Senate District, which stretches along much of the Sierra Nevada from a corner of Sacramento County down as far as Death Valley. Modesto is not a part of the new district but Oakdale is included.
