"Politics and Other Mistakes" piece on a study conducted by the Center for Women
"Politics and Other Mistakes" piece on a study conducted by the Center for Women in Government at the State University of New York at Albany showing the number of women filling both elected and appointed posts in Maine has diminished. In 1996, women held 30.4 percent of the state's top policy-making positions. That figure has declined to 27.3 percent in 1998. National numbers, now at 29.4 percent, are headed in the opposite direction, up from 28.3 percent last year. With references to 1st District congressional candidate Ross Connelly's on-again-off-again relationship with departing U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and the current candidates for the job of Republican state chairman.
