First Reading, 2018 vol. 17
Everyone wants to be Speaker and there's not a gal among them. This is 2018, I get it.
Regardless, there are some lovely men running and I wish them good luck - it's not for the faint of heart that's for sure. Plus many have amazing women behind them professionally and personally.
Earlier tonight I added a number of fundraising events to our online calendar, for the ladies who are running in November. Check that out here. Again - not anti-male candidate by any means but there are only so many hours in a day and I have to draw a bright pink line somewhere in what I dedicate time to post. So the ladies' get their fundraising events posted on le Pink Granite calendar.
