Maryland General Assembly Will Hold Joint Session TOMORROW
In Celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the
Women’s Suffrage March of 1913 from New York to Washington, D.C.
(ANNAPOLIS - February 21, 2013) - TOMORROW, Friday, February 22, 2013, at 11 a.m. the Maryland General Assembly will hold a joint session in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Women’s Suffrage March from New York to Washington, D.C.
Spearheaded by the 56-female Women’s Caucus, female members of both the Senate and House will assemble in the rotunda at 10:45 a.m. where they will prepare to march together into the Joint Session to be held in the House Chambers.
The celebration will begin with Delegate Melony G. Griffith singing the Star Spangled Banner. The activities will conclude with the women participating in an oral rendition of the march from New York to Washington, D.C. and will include a special focus on the march through Maryland.
Not since 1997, has a joint session of the Maryland General Assembly been held to celebrate the Women Legislators of Maryland. The 1997 joint session paid tribute to the 25th year of the founding of the Women’s Caucus.
“We expect this to be a very moving event. Collecting all the data and trying to put together a program that is inclusive of all 56 members of our Maryland General Assembly was quite challenging, but exciting. I look forward to seeing it all come together,” said Senator Catherine Pugh, chair of the Women’s Caucus.
The Glover Report: Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford, Dr. Gregory Thornton, Council President Jack Young and Former Mayor Sheila Dixon Visit The Great Gilmor Elementary School at Epicenter of "Freddie Gray"
Today, Rutherford, Dr. Thornton, Baltimore City Council President Bernard “Jack” Young and former Mayor Sheila Dixon visited Gilmor Elementary and let me tell you, it gave me hope.
As Sandtown-Winchester has attempted to rebound since the Freddie Gray death, Gilmor Elementary has become a critical focus of such groups as our newly formed Sandtown-Winchester UNITED (SWU). SWU was formed because some tenured residents and I concluded that we needed to make our voices heard and effectively so. Too many folks were attempting to speak on our behalf and they were unqualified to do so. Read in Full >>

TGR: Sheila Dixon Attends Nearly a Dozen Back-to-School Events, including East Baltimore :: See PICS
And so, as Dixon gave her education message (quite on point, I might add) and as the Minister shared his words of encouragement in his own, unique style, I am reminded that there are still black leaders in Baltimore who genuinely love the people. In terms of the new school year, Dixon specifically reminded parents to feed children breakfast before school, to cut-off the television during the school week, to go to PTA meetings, and to generally take a pro-active approach to their child's educational career.
