A seat at the table

Women now make up a quarter of the state legislators in the United States. Today, 1,865 or 25.3 percent of the 7,383 state legislators are women. That compares to 344 or 4.5 percent in 1971, according to the spring 2018 issue of Ms. magazine.

We’ve made progress, but we still have a long way to go. As Senator Elizabeth Warren once said, “If you don’t have a seat at the table, you’re probably on the menu.”

    Following your logic of what a gift Schoenbeck is to the race and how we are so lucky to have him running. And how Tapio was a distaste.why didn’t Schoenbeck grace our presence with running for senator against Tapio last term? He could have because he was already a sitting legislator on the house side at that time. Now that we have a solid candidate, who has dedicated his life to service in the national guard, American Legion, a retired professor of economics and retired from western area power administration (so an extremely broad field of knowledge), now Schoenbeck decides to run. Where was he two years ago when we needed him to run then as an already sitting legislator? Being a consummate politician doesn’t make you a good legislator.
