Left is the House Minority Secretary for the State of North Carolina, Bobbie Richardson.
I had the opportunity to speak at the NCSL Symposium for Women Legislative Leaders in Santa Fe, NM. While that was enjoyable for me, I was also fortunate enough to get to hang around afterwards and listen to them discuss issues within each of their States. As a voter, I had no idea how much work it takes just to get a critical issue to the ballot box, or to allocate funding for basic resources that the people in each state need. These women work hard under very stressful conditions, yet are masterful at negotiating with others who don't always see it their way. In fact, that's the job. And when it's done well, Good Politics bring great results to our communities. Out of about 7000 state legislators, only about 300 are women. We need more. To all our legislators and policy makers out making a difference, THANK YOU!
